Consultants at AccessibilityOz have conducted accessibility audits against the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines for twelve years. As a W3C Member, AccessibilityOz is a part of the W3C WCAG Working Group and has made significant contributions to WCAG2. Read a testimonial of the DiVine accessibility audit.
In auditing a site for accessibility compliance there needs to be a mix of automated and manual testing. AccessibilityOz uses the following automated testing tools:
- FireFox Web Developer Toolbar
- Colour Contrast Analyser by WAT-C
- Juicy Studio Luminosity Analyser
- Juicy Studio Readability Analyser
- W3C HTML Validator
- W3C CSS Validator
An absolutely essential part of an auditing process is manual testing. At AccessibilityOz we always manually test web sites to review content accessibility.
On completion of testing a report is developed that includes the findings of the in-depth audit. Each success criterion within WCAG2 is listed including:
- Findings – the specific finding for the site is detailed.
- Example – an example violation is detailed.
- Recommendations – a valid fix for the particular accessibility violation is included.
Using a combination of automated and manual testing, all violations in the site are listed within the report or in associated appendices. These violations are listed in a format that will be easy for developers to read and ascertain specific fixes.
A presentation of the results is provided to the developers and relevant staff. Developers or relevant staff are also able to query any violations or recommendations at a later date via phone or email.
