I had the opportunity to help many clients with their digital accessibility and web development needs. Here's what they had to say:
I highly recommend Taner, he is a true expert when it comes to accessibility! He helped SPRIND to make the website accessible, not only by knowing what needs to be done, but as well, by guiding us, how to do so, and helping us execute. Working with Taner is a pleasure, as he takes over responsibility, is very responsive and makes sure he communicates in a way, his clients understand. Beyond his knowledge and work ethics he is a nice person to work with! I am looking forward to working with Taner again!
A selection of previous clients for accessibility and front-end development services include:
