Many governments and territories are beginning to mandate accessibility for websites, including the Government of Ontario (AODA) and the United States government (Section 508). Our website compliance auditing ensures that your website conforms to the appropriate legislation and allows individuals with disabilities increased access to your website.
Compliance audits are a popular choice for companies striving to meet legislative compliance and increase accessibility with minimal resources.
Creating a product that is universally accessible for everyone increases your company’s opportunity to increase its client base. User Experience website audits rise above legislation compliance and strive to create a product that is equally usable for individuals using adaptive technologies like screen readers.
Types of Testing
The first step to reach legislative compliance. Remediating failed success criteria that are noted through automated testing should result in 100% accessibility compliance for the same automated tools used by accessibility testers.
While automated testing does not speak to complete user functionality, it is a popular choice for companies striving to meet legislative compliance and increase accessibility with minimal resources.
Using automated testing reports as a foundation, additional accessibility checks are performed for WCAG 2.0 & 2.1 success criteria which require a manual review. Manual review may include code inspection and user testing, as well as other tools.
Semi-automated testing will result in legislative conformance and provide greater user experience for individuals using special tools like screen readers.
