The Canadian Museum for Human Rights was building its website with Drupal. The work on the branding, design, and strategy had been completed. The overall configuration and architecture had been determined. The outstanding issue was in knowing how to provide a quality online experience for the visually impaired that addressed their range of abilities.
The museum determined they needed to build new functionality into their website. They needed to allow the visually impaired to self-configure their online experience by modifying font size, line height, font style, contrast, and highlight dynamic elements such as link style. Furthermore, the user preferences needed to remain in place for the entire visit and, it needed to function in both of Canada’s official languages.
Finally, to fit within the general website’s deployment schedule, the museum needed a solution that could be created, built and tested in its own environment and then integrated with the site post-launch, functioning with their already well-into-development website and theme.
The CMHR recognized that this complex set of problems was beyond the capabilities of both their internal staff and the firm completing work on the general website configuration and build. The museum realized they needed the expertise of a firm capable of handling tough technical challenges with Drupal. They understood they needed the expertise of the team at OPIN.
