Web Accessibility Reviews
We evaluate web sites, mobile and online applications for accessibility. Our goal is to make projects accessible to the widest audience possible.

Accessibility Design and Code Reviews:
We strongly recommend that you or your designer familiarize yourself with our web accessibility guidelines, the WCAG 2.0, ATAG, and UAG guidelines as well as some of the free web accessibility validation tools we use. These will help teams perform a self assessment and make simple corrections prior to handing off new designs or code for a professional accessibility review. For example, use of the Paciello Group's free Contrast Analysis tool will help ensure adequate color contrast is in place so we can focus on more complex accessibility issues when we receive your files.
Types of reviews:
Reviews are given at various points in the development process, earlier involvement typically guarantees more efficient implementation of accessibile features.
Design reviews: Assesses the surface of the designs i.e. color, contrast, labels, white space, predictability of links and interaction. We review JPEGs, wireframes, and clickable HTML pages with simple images.
- Code reviews: Assesses the underlying code, taking into account the semantic structure of the code. We use a mixture of automated tools and live testing using JAWS and NVDA screen readers.
Turn around time for reviews depend on the depth, complexity, and the number of reviews we have waiting in our queue. Generally we ask to give us as much lead-time as possible. Typical reviews are completed in under three weeks.
We also work on larger projects as accessibility strategists guiding the development process and ensuring accessible solutions are incorporated into the design and code.
We provide a report with screenshots illustrating potential problem areas along with recommendations on how to address the issue(s). Follow-up questions may be discussed in an in-person meeting to explain our findings in more detail.
