What are your audit standards?

We audit against the latest WCAG 2.2 guidelines. We stay updated with changes to regulations and update all our systems and processes continuously.

Do you guide us through the results?

We offer hourly consultancy services, where we will sit with your team to help you understand the issues we found and suggest remediation techniques.

Does the audit come with a report?

Yes, all accessibility audits include a report detailing the issues we have found with direct reference to the WCAG conformance criteria that has failed.

How long does an audit take?

You can expect a complete audit to take an average of two or three weeks, but the timeline will depend on the number and complexity of templates on your website

user testing

Accessibility testing will help you understand the barriers some users face when navigating your website. We can work with a wide range of users with hearing, sight, mobility or cognitive impairments to test your website and provide you with valuable usability feedback. We will help you identify accessibility issues and provide the practical guidance and support to put them right, improving the overall quality of a service.

Meeting legal

In 2018, accessibility regulations came into force for public sector websites in the UK. The UK Government is now monitoring affected websites to check they follow the rules and aren’t breaking legal requirements. If you’ve received a demand letter from the Government Digital Service (GDS) website accessibility monitoring team, we can provide accessibility auditing, training and help fixing common errors.
