Get ADA Web Accessible

WCAG 2.0 and Section 508, ADA Compliance for websites

 

 

One of the first steps that must be taken with the goal of developing an ADA accessible website is to know what the issues are.

 

 

 

During a Website Accessibility Audit, we use our auditing tools and manually perform a page-by-page audit on your website using the same assistive technologies those with disabilities use. We utilize the WCAG 2.0 Level AA standards which are required for both ADA and Section 504/508.

  • Perform a manual audit using JAWS screen reader ensuring your content can be used by your visitors who use this type of assistive technologies and so your website meets the WCAG 2.0 guidelines;
  • Color contrast, menus, skip links on the website will be audited;
  • Review CSS and HTML code and alt tags;
  • Provide a detailed Accessibility Audit Report outlining audit findings which will include all areas that have Errors, Warnings, and Manual Reviews required and make recommendations on how to correct these.

For websites that have changes in their content on a regular basis, our Accessibility Assurance Program will ensure your website stays accessible.

Who is this audit for:

Most all businesses are required to have an accessible website to meet the ADA requirements.

Schools, businesses and government agencies or organization who receive federal funding and must be compliant with Section 508.

Those who have a legal lawsuit pending or have received a demand letter from the Department of Justice (DOJ) and want to remediate the errors to facilitate the needed changes to comply with the demands the compliant so your website follows the guidelines set out by WCAG 2.0

When you should request an Accessibility Audit

  • An Accessibility Audit should be completed when your goal is to have your website remediated by your team or ours. It is necessary to have the audit completed in order to pinpoint the errors. A manual audit will identify the errors, warnings, and notices.
  • If you have a development team who will want to perform the remediations, the Accessibility Report will give them the pages the errors are on, the level of severity and show the WCAG standard. Depending on how versed your team is in implementing the remediations, optionally, we can also provide the necessary coding needed to perform the remediations.
  • If you do not have a team who cannot implement the needed remediations, our team of remediators is available.
  • Sometimes, it makes more economic sense to have a new accessible website developed rather than trying to fixing extensive errors. We can make the recommendation once the audit is complete and can handle your new web development from start to finish working closely with you and your team. 

What you receive

  • You will receive a comprehensive, well-organized Accessibility Report your team can utilize for making the needed changes on your website.
  • We will supply a sample Accessibility Statement you can modify for your business and place on your website.
  • A sample of form giving users a method of contacting you to file a complaint regarding any accessibility issue.

Next Steps:
Schedule a convenient time to discuss your needs.  We will review your goals with you and determine if an Accessibility Audit is the best solution for your business as well as the best options for remediation and ongoing methods of keeping your website accessible.

Documents on your accessible website must also be accessible or offer an alternative method of delivery.

What types of documents can be remediated?

The most common documents shared on the Internet are PDFs, Word documents, PowerPoint presentations, and Excel spreadsheets.  We provide remediation services for these types of documents. Remediation services are available from GetADAAccessible.com to assist you in converting documents into compliant sources for your website.

What does it cost to have Accessible Documents?

The cost to either remediate or create accessible documents is dependent on a few things.

  1. The type of document and if it’s available in its narrative format. For example, if a PDF was originally created in Word, the Word document is available.
  2. The complexity of the document. We separate documents into two complexities: Simple and Complex.  Simple being text and images.  A complex document could be an employment application or other such documents.

Schedule a convenient time to discuss current documents you provide on your website, and how future documents will be made accessible.

Compliance is a perpetual task. Uploading new pictures, adding new text, how do you know if your website is still accessible after all your changes?
