We are Access by Audit, part of Access by Design
A Website Accessibility Audit for your website is essential.
If you receive public funds, you are required by the UK Government to have an audit. Your website will need to achieve a certain level of compliance. You will also need to have an Accessibility Statement on your website.
If you do not receive public funds, you will need both a website accessibility audit and a website Accessibility Statement. This is to protect you from litigation, if your website is not accessible because it will be breach of the Equality Act.
We have 15 years of experience with website accessibility
We have been building accessible websites that are at the highest level of accessibility since 2006, far exceeding any statutory requirements. We want to help you ensure that your website is accessible to everyone, regardless of their ability or disability.
However, we are not here to encourage you to spend a lot of money on improving your website or spend even more money on a new one. Instead, we want to work alongside you, with your website exactly as it is now. We will perform a comprehensive audit of your website and produce an Accessibility Statement that will protect you from litigation. We could also work alongside your web designers and develop a strategy to improve the accessibility of your website over the longer term, if you would like us to.
Not all accessibility audits are the same!
There are many "accessibility experts" who will run your website through some automated checkers, producing a report and charge you a significant amount of money.
The difficulty with just relying on automated checks is that your website may still break accessibility guidelines and put you in breach of the Equality Act. This is why thorough manual checking is essential. This can only be done properly by someone who has extensive knowledge of accessible website design.
Our new website goes live this week and contains a lot of information that will be valuable to both business owners and website designers.
