Digital Accessibility Starter Kit

Before investing time and money into tools and services, learn the basics about digital accessibility and how you can get your teams started on making an immediate impact. This accessibility guide introduces you to the core principles of digital accessibility, including:

  • The four design principles the WCAG is based on
  • A deeper dive into assistive technologies used by people with different cognitive and physical limitations
  • Research into how adopting a digital accessibility program will benefit your business
  • An explanation of the WCAG and its influences all other accessibility standards
  • An introduction into understanding the risks and opportunities of using accessibility tools
  • A roadmap to starting your own accessibility program at your company


Compliance Audit

A digital accessibility compliance audit is a thorough assessment of how accessible your website, web application, or mobile application is to individuals with physical or cognitive impairments. The audit is measured specifically against standards like WCAG or legislation that leverages those standards like ADA, Section 508, AODA, or others. Compliance audits serve to establish a baseline for where you are today but include advice and guidance on how to become compliant or maintain compliance.

Audits are a starting point in any digital accessibility program because they identify the issues that need to be remediated to become compliant. Testing is performed with automated tools and manually by a blend of QA professionals with and without physical or cognitive impairments. This approach gives you the most accurate information on your current state of compliance and where to go next.
