Accessibility Auditing and Testing
Accessibility is about providing access to information for everyone, regardless of age or ability, so that each individual can realize their full potential. Different people can have different types, ranges and combinations of accessibility issues, as well as different levels of computer skills. This means that a “pass/fail” or “X % accessible” approach for assessment does not work nearly as well as having actionable feedback on key accessibility issues.
At Equal Entry, we partner with our clients to define a set of scenarios that represent an individual’s goals in using his or her website or application. We focus on users with disabilities and their ability to complete those steps. We don’t rely on automated testing tools that can be fooled.
By writing step-by-step scenarios for how someone will use a product or website, and following those steps using assistive technology, we are able to locate every possible blocking issue, along with scores of other issues that might otherwise go unnoticed. All of our accessibility testing is done manually. While automated testing can be informative, we have found that manual testing yields much greater accuracy, because it matches the individual’s experience.
