Accessibility Testing

Ablr provides a full range of accessibility and inclusion services. The Ablr method combines humanity (this means user testing with people who have a disability) with innovative technology for unmatched accuracy. We invite you to explore the Ablr process. Know that we are always here to speak with you further about your company’s specific needs.

Digital Content Accessibility

Accessibility Audit & Report

The Audit includes a combination of automated testing and manual/human testing.

The Audit will:

  • Evaluate the website, app, document, or any digital content with a thorough assessment using a representative sample.
  • Assess the level of compliance against WCAG, 2.1 Level AA

The Report contains:

  • Snapshot of the compliance status of your website.
  • Recommendations to correct issues using examples, screenshots, and links to reputable resources.

Also included in the Audit & Report Service

  • The creation of a brief video that documents the User Experience within identified barriers. By using assistive technology, such as a screen reader, the video allows the audience to understand how users may struggle while interacting with their digital content, e.g., websites, apps, and documents.
  • A comprehensive slide deck that overviews Ablr’s findings from the Audit and outlines next steps.

“Together, we must remove the physical barriers we have created and the social barriers that we have accepted. For ours will never be a truly prosperous nation until all within it prosper.”

George H. W. Bush

Remediation of Violations Found

This step fixes the issues found during the Audit. There are several options available to you during this step:

  1. Fix these issues by using the methods we supply in the audit report, which apply to WCAG 2.1 standards at Level AA.
  2. Use Ablr’s training option to address issues. (hyperlink to this)
  3. Utilize Ablr’s internal development team for a complete solution.

Validation of Remediation

After Audit issues have been addressed, Ablr will ensure these issues are truly fixed to WCAG 2.1 standards. This is called validation. After Ablr completes the validation of remediated content, you will be sent a follow-up report that identifies what has been fixed, what has been partially fixed (and why), and what is not fixed.

ADA Compliance

Accessibility Conformance Report (ACR)

The ACR is used for reporting a product’s accessibility compliance level. After validating changes from the audit report using the VPAT (Voluntary Product Accessibility Template), Ablr can create the ACR. The ACR is similar in concept to a sanitation rating at a restaurant. It is critical to have a clean one! Many organizations require this accessibility compliance report be published on a website or made available to customers and users upon request.

Accessibility Statement

Ablr will provide an Accessibility Statement to place on a client’s website. This statement communicates your initiative to serve the disability community and acts as reassurance to your customers that accessibility is a priority for you.

Accessibility Monitoring

Monitoring helps ensure that your website remains accessible as you update and grow. As content is updated and webpages are added, there is a high chance that unexpected accessibility issues will arise. It is important to plan for regular website checks and evaluations.

Ablr can provide continuous reports of online content, including large websites (up to 25,000 pages), with the findings of dynamic scans for accessibility issues.

Through the utilization of an automated web crawling solution, Ablr will ensure compliance and track accessibility conformance over time.

During Monitoring, Ablr will:

  • Generate a report of the accessibility issues based on WCAG 2.1, Level AA standards
  • Show the analytics reflecting website issues to clarify severity and frequency for easier prioritization for fixes
  • Provide insight into accessibility issue history to target which digital content might need help with improving accessible practices
  • Spot check using manual testing methods
