Website Accessibility Checks

It is often very difficult for many disabled people, including people with sight loss, to access websites. This maybe because the text is too small or uses the wrong colours for people with reduced vision. Frequently websites are incompatible with speech and magnification accessible software used by blind & partially sighted people.

What Do Our Accessibility Checks Involve?

An initial visual Accessibility check is conducted by a sighted person and is designed to identify any visible issues with colour, font and images.

Following this, an in-depth Compatibility check is then conducted by a visually impaired person using specialist screen reading software, to test for problems such as broken links. The software assesses content such as links, headings, forms, images and search boxes.

Finally, once both checks are complete, our findings are consolidated into a full report, and issued with suggestions and recommendations on how to improve the website.

Outcome

Once your website has been checked:

  • You will have reassurance it is fully accessible to all members of the public, including people with a visual impairment.
  • You will have gained the knowledge of how to make further website updates accessible.
  • You will gain a competitive advantage by being fully inclusive, ensuring you don’t alienate potential disabled customers.
  • Fulfill your legal obligation, in line with the 2010 Equality Act, to make all services accessible to disabled people
