WCAG Web Accessibility Audits & Certifications

We've developed a WCAG audit process for websites and web apps to help our clients achieve and confidently verify WCAG 2.1 AA  compliance.  Our team of certified auditors and assistive technology users will work together with your team to identify web accessibility issues and implement solutions to provide a barrier-free experience for all users.

Our Process

1. Demo, Scoping, and Onboarding

Our Web Accessibility Consultants set up a time to virtually demo your website or web application. We’ll discuss your WCAG compliance goals and put together a proposal outlining which templates, views, and pages will be included in the audit and certification. Most clients install our A11Y Center immediately and we work together to create a Web Accessibility Policy outlining the timeline to reach WCAG 2.1 AA or AAA compliance.

2. Initial WCAG Compliance Audit

We’ll assign you a Web Accessibility Specialist to run a battery of automated and manual tests on each page we’re auditing. We’ll determine where your website or web app is passing or failing WCAG success criteria and load all the failures into RAMP as remediation tasks with detailed instructions for your developers.

3. Upgrades

Your developers will fix the accessibility issues using the list of remediation tasks. Each task will identify the page path, failed WCAG success criteria, and recommended remediation. With a Premium RAMP Subscription, we’ll assign a Web Accessibility Specialist to assist and guide you throughout remediation.

4. Verification WCAG Audit

Once all the remediation tasks are completed and marked as “Ready to Review” by your developers, we’ll complete a second thorough audit to verify the tasks were completed within WCAG requirements.

5. Accessibility User Experience (UX) Testing

Now it’s time to verify that we’ve made your website or web application truly accessible for users with disabilities. We’ll create a list of scenarios to test, then work with a member of our UX Testing Team to navigate them on a screen share. We typically uncover some issues and load them into RAMP for your developers to complete.

6. WCAG 2.1 AA Certification, VPAT, and Maintenance

Your Web Accessibility Specialist will work with you to update your Accessibility Policy, which will now include a Certification Statement from Accessible Web. We’ll also complete a VPAT that outlines the scope of our testing and details of how your website or web app conforms with WCAG. Most clients sign up for an A11y Partner Program RAMP subscription so we can maintain conformance together and display our Certification Seal on your A11y Center.

After Your Audit and Certification

Accessible Web RAMP offers features to help you manage your website or web application to remain WCAG compliant.
