When you should request a Website Accessibility Audit
A Website 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 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 provide the team with 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, Get ADA Accessible can also provide the necessary coding needed to perform the remediations.
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.
