Accessibility Services

What services do we provide?

Web Key IT offers a full suite of services designed to help our clients meet their objectives and comply with legislation in terms of digital accessibility. 

Please contact us if the service you want is not listed.  We are able to accommodate most requirements. 

We provide bespoke testing services, tailored to fit the most diverse of needs.

The Web Key IT and Digital Accessibility Centre Accreditation has two levels – Accessible (AA standard) and Gold Accredited (almost AAA standard, in line with the views of the testing team).

All our testing is carried out in line with the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines-Evaluation Methodology (WCAG-EM). This ensures websites conform to the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.0 which now also meets the requirements of ISO/IEC 40500:2012. Our accreditation has the end user at its heart. Websites were designed for people after all!

Audit and Accreditation Service

We can provide a full end-to-end audit and accreditation service for your website, intranet, extranet and applications.

Our accreditation audit is robust and delivered through a three stage process:

  • An expert manual evaluation is carried out by Web Key IT’s trained and experienced website accessibility auditors
  • DAC’s experienced team of user testers test the site using a variety of assistive technologies including: screen readers, magnification, voice activated, switch access, keyboard only, pointing devices.
  • The Site undergoes technical auditing via a process of complete re-testing by both manual experts and user testing.

We will discuss the primary platform with you following a detailed consultation process. The testing platform includes by default Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox under Microsoft Windows. We can also test on all platforms and a multitude of devices including Mac and mobile devices. Please discuss this with us during the consultation process.

Value, Education and Transparency:  Our Keywords!

We encourage you to get involved during the auditing of your site. All our clients are welcome to spend a day with our testers during their audit.

If you are having user testing conducted, you are welcome to spend a day with our testers during their audit or to participate via videoconferencing.

Our test teams comprise of around 6 to 7 individuals, all of whom have different types of disabilities and most of whom use assistive technology to access computers.

We test to ensure maximum accessibility for those people with: visual impairment, blindness, colour blindness, dyslexia, mobility impairments, learning disabilities, deafness and aspergers.
