WCAG 2.1 Compliance

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) sets the main international standards for the World Wide Web and its accessibility. W3C created the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1) which are similar to Section 508, but on an international level.

 

Having a WCAG 2.1 A/AA/AAA accessibility audit performed on your website or mobile application provides your organization with the information you need to devise a plan to remediate and become compliant with the universally recognized guidelines. By ensuring your digital presence is accessible to all and increases your customer satisfaction and limit business risk.
Our clients receive a breakdown of all checkpoints that don’t comply with the WCAG 2.1 A/AA/AAA standards. We use automated results with those identified by our manual testers, providing our clients with a comprehensive view of any accessibility issues within their websites and/or mobile applications.

Who might need an accessibility compliance certification?

  • All Government Agencies
  • Educational Institutes
  • Businesses responding to a demand letter, or court summons.
  • Non-profits organizations seeking to achieve compliance with Section 508.
  • Any organization, business or non-profit organization looking to reach a wider audience, and create a more inclusive online experience for their customers and well-wishers.
Our Testing Methodology

Our four-point testing starts with individuals with at least one impairment using assistive technology who examine pages and functions of each website and/or mobile application for the guidelines as defined by WCAG 2.1 A/AA/AAA. A Subject Matter Expert then reviews each outcome during the second pass testing, answering deferred questions, ensuring accuracy and adding their input as needed. These manual results are then combined with the results from our automated testing output, creating two comprehensive reports which are again reviewed for accuracy by our experts, ultimately giving our clients in-depth, real-world results.

Accessibility Evaluation Report

The evaluation report includes a summary of accessibility test results for the website or mobile application. The final evaluation report includes the results of automated and manual accessibility tests including HTML5/CSS validation, automated accessibility scans; contrast and font resize tests, video titles/text, audio, and screen reader testing.

Ongoing Improvement and Support

We consider an engagement successful when our clients become self-sufficient over time, so throughout the audit process, we assure that your team understands the logic behind our recommendations instead of just giving you a list of steps to follow. Our Audit completion report will help and guide with all the pitfalls and guide you how to go forward. This detailed guide provides your development team with best-practice remediation recommendations established by our world-class Subject Matter Experts incorporating their years of varied backgrounds and experiences.
