Our Process

1

Initial Consultation

We would first have a detailed discussion with your program manager to understand your specific compliance goals. For example, a federal agency may wish to ensure that their public-facing website meets section 508 standards to avoid legal hassles.

2

Compliance Assessment

Our team audits your digital content—the website, PDF documents, and multimedia files. For instance, we may find that a website’s navigation menu can’t be navigated using a screen reader.

3

Detailed Reporting

We will also provide a detailed report with very specific findings and examples of non-compliance, as well as prioritized recommendations. For example, it might state that your PDF files are untagged and recommend you tag them to meet Section 508 requirements.

4

Remediation Planning

We use the audit and report to create a customized plan of action. This plan outlines concrete actions including but not limited to adding alt text to images, keyboard accessible for all interactive elements, and updating PDF files to be accessible.

5

Implementation

Execute the remediation plan with your IT and content teams. Work with web developers in remediating WCAG 2.0 compliance issues of web content.

6

Testing, Verification, & Ongoing Support

We conduct rigorous testing through the use of automated tools and manual reviews to ensure all problems are fixed. We test accessibility with actual screen readers and other assistive technologies. Lastly we provide continuous support through periodic audits and updates for ongoing compliance with any new content or changes in standards.

Regulatory Compliance

Meeting national standards on accessibility, as required under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, means that you will be less likely to face lawsuits. For example, a federal agency that ensures its information and communication technology conforms to Section 508 requirements will enable avoidance of litigation and penalties.

Enhanced Accessibility

A government website, for example, designed with forms that are accessible, will facilitate the independence of a visually impaired user to fill in and submit relevant documents unassisted through the use of a screen reader.
