VPAT (Voluntary Product Accessibility Template) reports and Audit Assessment Reports are two important services that our company offers to ensure the accessibility of digital products and websites.

VPAT Reports

A VPAT report is a standardized document that evaluates the accessibility features of a product or service. We provide VPAT reports to help you assess the level of accessibility of your digital products or websites. Our experts analyze your product or website based on WCAG 2.2 guidelines and other accessibility standards, and then generate a comprehensive VPAT report. This report includes detailed information about the level of compliance with accessibility standards, highlighting any areas that need improvement. VPAT reports provide a structured evaluation of your product or service's accessibility features. These reports are often created to comply with legal requirements or to demonstrate a commitment to accessibility. Here are some key characteristics of VPAT reports:

Structure

Structure

VPAT reports follow a standardized format and typically consist of several sections, including an executive summary, product details, tests and results, and an assessment of conformance to specific accessibility standards.

Accessibility evaluation

Accessibility evaluation

The report assesses various aspects of your product's accessibility, such as compatibility with assistive technologies, keyboard accessibility, navigation, color contrast, alternative text for images, and more. It may list specific accessibility standards or guidelines used for the evaluation, like the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).

Conformance levels

Conformance levels

VPAT reports often indicate the level of conformance with accessibility standards using a scale defined by the template. The scale may include levels like "Supports," "Partially Supports," or "Does Not Support" to clearly communicate your product's accessibility compliance.

Product details

Product details

The report provides information about the product or service being evaluated, including its name, version, and any relevant specifications. It may also include details about the environment in which the assessment was conducted, such as operating systems, browsers, and assistive technologies used.

Test procedures and results

Test procedures and results

The VPAT report outlines the methods and tools used to evaluate accessibility. It describes the specific tests performed and provides an overview of the results, including any barriers or limitations discovered during the assessment.

Recommendations

Recommendations

Depending on the evaluation results, VPAT reports may include recommendations for improving accessibility. These recommendations can help you identify areas for enhancement and prioritize remediation efforts.

VPAT reports are important resources for you to communicate your commitment to accessibility, demonstrate compliance with accessibility standards, and identify areas of improvement in your digital products or websites.

Audit Assessment Reports

The Audit Assessment Reports provided by our company are designed to evaluate the accessibility of websites and digital products. Our team conducts a comprehensive audit using a combination of manual, user, and automated testing methods, all of which follow the WCAG 2.2 guidelines. During the audit process, we thoroughly examine various aspects of your website or product, including its navigation, color contrast, keyboard accessibility, and more. Our goal is to identify any accessibility barriers present and provide you with a detailed understanding of the areas that need improvement Once the audit is complete, we compile an in-depth assessment report that includes a matrix representation of our findings. This matrix categorizes the accessibility issues based on their priority (low, medium, high) and severity (Minor/To consider, Important, Critical). By using this matrix, you can easily comprehend your website or product's overall accessibility status and determine which improvements should be prioritized. Overall, our VPAT reports and Audit Assessment Reports provide a clear assessment of accessibility barriers. This enables you to make informed decisions regarding the necessary improvements to enhance your website or digital product's accessibility, making them inclusive for all users.
