Website accessibility audit packages

Jim recently conducted an accessibility audit of the Health Rights Information Scotland (HRIS) website. The report was extremely detailed. It explained what the WCAG guidelines mean, how compliance was assessed, what problems were identified and how these could be fixed. We are confident that implementing Jim’s recommendations will greatly improve the accessibility of our site. The report was, as far as possible, free from technical jargon, and Jim was always more than happy to have a chat about things we did not understand. This evaluation has been extremely useful.

Website accessibility auditWho can benefit from these audits?

These packages are suitable for all businesses, voluntary, education and public sector.

What standard will be used?

Your website will be checked against the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) which are considered the de-facto standard in relation to web accessibility.

Although these guidelines are not legally binding, they are likely to be the guidelines referred to when assessing whether or not you have taken steps to make your website accessible to disabled people.
