Roostify has announced the finalization of its integration with Docutech

Roostify has announced that all consumer-facing aspects of its application platform are now accessible for customers with disabilities. Roostify is certified to Web Compatibility and Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, Level AA, enabling lenders to offer an Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant loan experience to their applicants. Homebuyers and homeowners can now take advantage of comprehensive screen reader usability, color contrast/font usage, enlarged display performance and keyboard controls throughout their home loan process.
 
“We’re proud to have built a platform that meets the stringent AA requirements and extends the Roostify benefits of a faster, lower-anxiety loan process to homebuyers and homeowners of all abilities,” said Sandeep Aji, VP of Products at Roostify.
 
The company’s consumer experience was recently certified by an independent third-party as being WCAG 2.0, Level AA-compliant. The AA designation represents a standard of accessibility for all users, including people with limited or no vision, limited or no hearing, colorblindness and limited mobility.
 
Some of the design elements incorporated into the platform that support those with disabilities include:
 
►The mortgage application allows users to navigate the system using only using their keyboard;
►Text and images can be resized without the user losing any information or their place in the application;
►Text and images offer sufficient contrast between foreground and background color combinations for those with visual limitations;
►Navigational aids exist throughout the application from beginning to end.
 
The designation is the culmination of a long-term effort that began with the development of the company’s recently-unveiled Roostify Atomic design system.
 
“From the very beginning, we approached Roostify Atomic with accessibility in mind,” said Aji. “One of our core tenets of product design is inclusion–we want to improve the loan process for all consumers. Roostify Atomic gave us an opportunity to build an experience that was fully accessible by anyone trying to buy or refinance a home. What’s more, accessible design is simply good design, and the WCAG-compliant platform offers a better experience for users with and without disabilities.”
