Audits to Check the Accessibility of Websites and Applications

Disability affects 14.1 million people in the UK including 19% of working age adults and 44% of pension age adults in the UK.

Overview

Digital websites and applications are failing to meet the needs of more than 1-in-5 UK customers and less than 1% of website homepages meet basic web accessibility standards.

Ensuring your website is presenting in a way that is accessible to all can seem a daunting task with so many standards to meet, to help we’ve designed a range of tests tailored to meet your requirements.

Our Accessibility Audits

The Accessibility Audit service provides a check of your application or website and a full set of actionable insights and recommendations on how to remove barriers that would otherwise prevent people with a range of disabilities from accessing it.

To help you decided which level is best for you, we have created four separate approaches, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
