Ensure everyone has a fantastic time no matter their ability by providing accessibility information and capturing needs ahead of time.

A key step to ensuring your event is accessible is to provide your attendees have all the details ahead of the event. This can include information such as:

  • Accessible parking

How to enter your accessibility information

To enter your accessibility information for your event:

  2. Navigate to design & comms > accessibility > information via the left-hand menu bar

  3. Enter all relevant details in the form provided

  4. Click + add custom info to add a custom field of your choosing > click save

It’s also best to disclose any specifics in your event description, such as strobe lighting, flash photography, amplified music or sounds, etc.

​🔍 Web accessibility at Humanitix

Every time we roll out a new feature, we ensure it adheres to accessibility standards, like the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1). Testing is continuous and Humanitix has worked with Atlassian, Vision Australia, Google, Intopia and Knowbility to audit and fix issues on our platform.

The Humanitix development team also completes regular training to stay on top of the latest accessibility standards.

Colour automation - development of an algorithm

We love to offer event hosts the ability to customise their event pages with their own styling and brand colours. Our dedicated team has developed an algorithm to automate the colour contrast of page backgrounds, secondary colours and fonts. Our hosts can keep their event pages accessible without sacrificing style.

Does Humanitix hold a Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) certification?

We are continually making updates and improvements to our products, with new releases at least every fortnight. Unfortunately, as the WCAG certification becomes invalid every time a product is updated, it is impractical for Humanitix to reapply for certification on such a regular basis!

So while we don’t hold the official certification, you can rest assured that accessibility is a core priority at Humanitix, and because of that, many of the world’s leading accessibility non-profits use Humanitix for their events. What matters most is that the solutions are accessible (and not just a formality!).

If you experience an area of Humanitix that is not accessible, please contact our team and provide as much details as possible.
