Why It Matters
WCAG 2.0 and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 contain accessibility guidelines adopted by companies and institutions of all sizes. Sites that don’t follow them risk frustrated users, missed business opportunities, and potential legal problems. Let us help you understand the guidelines and identify compliance issues.
How We Can Help
We start by spidering your entire site (up to 10,000 pages) with a tool that automatically flags many accessibility problems. A report is generated that identifies instances of failed compliance with WCAG 2.0 and Section 508.
From the report, we identify the top 30 recurring accessibility problems, and provide you with a written brief explaining each one in plain English, with example screenshots.
Our brief contains specific instructions for how to fix the problems and make the site more accessible. We can fix them (for an additional fee), or your internal team can fix them using the spider report.
We will run a monthly spider on pages that have been added or updated (for an additional fee), to identify new accessibility problems.
We can also test key pages with people who use screen readers and screen magnification programs, looking for ways to make the site “hyper-accessible,” a true pleasure to use.
We learned about the nuances of making technology accessible while redesigning perkins.org, one of the leading schools for students who are blind or visually impaired.
We recently partnered with and launched helenkeller.org, which involved extensive in-person testing with people who are blind, deaf-blind, or have low vision.
