What We Do
WCAG Compliance Testing
Designing websites for people who are visually impaired requires the same focus on the user experience as designing for people who are sighted. It is not simply about functionality. It’s not about whether they “can” consume your content, it’s about whether they will consume your content.
You get a thorough review by programmers and accessibility analysts who are blind and visually impaired, using JAWS, NVDA, ZoomText and other accessibility software. In addition to having a meticulous attention to detail and expert-level knowledge of current WCAG guidelines, they genuinely care about the 3.3% of Americans who need websites to be WCAG accessible.
No matter which level of WCAG compliance testing you need, utilize the only organization that tests with people who need WCAG compliant content to use the Internet every day. Plus, you get one of the most respected WCAG seals on the Internet.
Section 508 Compliance Testing
While there are many similarities between WCAG compliance and Section 508 compliance, there are some requirements unique to Section 508 of the United States Workforce Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
As a company that provides services to the federal government ourselves, we have a distinct sensitivity to Section 508 requirements.
Our Section 508 testing is done thoroughly by people who have a high probability of using the content we typically test in real life. Automated section 508 testing tools can miss things. Not all issues in the rapidly evolving area of web design and electronic content, particularly that designed for mobile, are black and white. In many cases it takes a skilled human to understand what will pass section 508 testing.
With so much at stake, don’t take chances on a piece of software that can fail and delay your project. Trust our experts for the highest level in section 508 testing.

How We Are Different
Real people doing real world compliance testing – you can’t find it anywhere else. Other companies’ technology may miss the parts of compliance testing that our testers won’t. They are real life users of compliant web content. No one cares more about making web content accessible than we do.
