Webbism can review your websites and apps to assess their accessibility. Our web accessibility audits range from:
Basic conformance – Accessibility testing with automated tools and a basic error report.
Detailed review – Manual and automated accessibility testing and a basic error report.
In-depth analysis – Manual and automated testing, an analysis of errors and a detailed report including example solutions with prioritised, actionable recommendations.
User testing with disabled users – uncovers issues not found by testing against the WCAG guidelines and shows the impact of accessibility issues on real people.
The evaluation will be conducted by a highly experienced web accessibility consultant, and the resulting report will include detailed technical recommendations for addressing any issues that we identify and suggestions for further improvement moving forward. We will test for conformance to WCAG 2.0 at Level AA. The current mandatory conformance standard for government agencies is Level A with AA standards to become mandatory by December 2014. Conformance issues will be prioritised according to conformance level.
Increase Return on Investment – The ABS states that in 2009, 18.5% of the Australian population reported having a disability. Spending money on accessible web services allows you to reach the largest audience possible.
Deliver strategic priorities – Deliver on strategic priorities for social inclusion, participation, equity and access as well as achieve disability plan objectives.
Gain positive exposure – Publicise your accessibility efforts to generate positive press. Inclusive websites also mean fewer complaints to the Minister, Secretary or the Human Rights Commission.
Increase engagement – Using non-accessible social media or online communities hinders engagement with the public. Increase engagement with some of the most vulnerable members of society through accessible solutions.
Meet National Transition Strategy (NTS) requirements – Meet the NTS requirements to comply to level A of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines by December 2012 and level AA by December 2014.
Legal compliance – Under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992, Australian Government agencies are required to ensure information and services are provided in a non-discriminatory, accessible manner. It also makes disability discrimination unlawful.
