We provide website Accessibility Audit services to identify and assess the accessibility barriers present in your website. These audits involve a thorough review and analysis of your website’s design, structure, content, and functionality to determine its compliance with accessibility standards and guidelines.

While WCAG 2.2 principles are widely accepted and recommended, you may require statistics on accessibility issues that are not aligned with these principles. In such cases, we can perform specialized audits to highlight specific accessibility concerns that may go beyond the standard guidelines.

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.
