Methodology

To ensure compliance, we go through the following steps:

    1. We run the page(s) through a battery of automated testing to quickly identify issues within the code. This identifies problems such as:
      • Improperly Attached Form Labels
      • Missing Alternative Text
      • Some Contrast Errors
      • Empty Links
    2. First Report
      • We return all of the compiled back to your development team with descriptions of the issues and our suggested fix for each item.
      • This report also includes any errors identified by attempting to navigate the site using only a keyboard.
      • Alternatively, we can still provide you with the report, but our team is available fix these issues for you.
    3. Manual Testing Using the Following Technologies
      • Windows
        • JAWS, in conjunction with Edge and Chrome
        • NVDA, in conjunction with FireFox
      • Mac OS
          • VoiceOver, in conjunction with Safari and Chrome
    4. Report on Screen Reader Issues.
    5. Final Testing
      • After each reporting phase, some test will be re-run to ensure the issues have been corrected
    6. Statement of Compliance
      • We can provide a statement for you, and will do so using this template from W3C.
      • We will also include a badge that should link back to either your Accessibility Statement or this page, outlining our methodologies in testing and certification. You can place this badge in the footer of compliant pages, or in the Accessibility Statement itself.
      • If you choose to craft your own statement, follow the recommendations on the above template and include a link back to this page to provide information on the testing methodologies.
