Accessibility testing works at 3 levels: 1) Inclusion for all per Universal Design principles and in the US, the Americans with Disabilities Act; 2) Legal compliance with Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act which mandates federal; 3) Corporate Responsibility- compliance with equality and fairness to accessing information and online resources for all.
An optimizing approach to ensuring your website, mobile app, device or experience is accessible to users with visual, cognitive, motor, and hearing impairments. Includes an analysis of your design and code against Section 508 guidelines and standards. Insight is gained by having actual users with disabilities give feedback on your design using their own Assistive Technology (eg JAWS or TalkBack) in a natural context.
- Get feedback from actual users with disabilities to provide context and proof-check Accessibility checker tools and W3 Guidelines (WCAG).
- Test with Assistive Technology eg. audible browsers and screen magnifiers like JAWS, MAGic, VoiceOver, and ChromeVox.
- Add real-world richness to automated analysis (checker tools).
- Get design recommendations that meet Section 508 compliance and A, AA, or AAA standard (WCAG 2.2).
Methods we use:
Section 508 Audit; Accessibility/usability testing; Accessibility code audit; Checker Tools (eg axe™).
