Technical Analysis for ADA Compliant Websites
Web Accessibility Assurance and Ongoing Technical Analysis for ADA, WCAG 2.1 and Section 508 Standards
Web Accessibility is essential for organizations and developers who want to provide quality websites and tools in a way that allows all people to access their services and products, including individuals with disabilities. Not only is website accessibility essential, it is a requirement for colleges, universities and public schools, as well as government institutions. Many other industry verticals are making this a priority as well.
Web Accessibility Compliance is a Long-Term Commitment
Achieving compliance with internationally recognized web accessibility standards, otherwise known as Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1), is a rigorous and multi-dimensional process. WCAG 2.1 provides a standard for web content accessibility for individuals, governments and organizations, on an international basis. Reaching these guidelines generally includes phases of work performed by trained professionals, who put endless hours and energy into transforming a website to function at its highest ability, thus allowing individuals with disabilities equal access to the content it provides.
Imagine if you were unable to leave your home and the only way to have access to the world was the Internet. Wouldn’t you want to have full access to all that it provides? Not only is achieving web accessibility important in order to provide equal access to individuals with disabilities, ensuring ongoing compliance is equally crucial through extensive technical analysis for ADA, WCAG 2.1 and Section 508 standards.
Web Accessibility is not a One and Done Initiative

Ongoing Accessibility Consulting
Web Accessibility Assurance Plans
Scheduled Periodic Reviews and Updated Letters of Conformance
Set up regular reviews of your website to test for web accessibility compliance and updated conformance statements.
The creators of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), recommend that organizations should conduct ongoing monitoring to provide accountability and enforcement of web accessibility standards. Websites may also invite and respond to feedback provided by users regarding the organization’s website and accessibility issues they may find. Attention should also be given to implementation plans for web accessibility effectiveness, which should be periodically reviewed. Regular reinforcement of an organization’s policy on web accessibility is a proactive measure that should be taken in order to alleviate risk and provide a better overall experience to all users including those with disabilities.
Luckily, at ADA FOR WEBSITES Web Solutions we offer a variety of options with regard to the frequency of ongoing accessibility performance services. Clients who believe their website is secure and don’t experience frequent changes may choose ongoing reviews to be performed on an annual basis. Other clients who may be more concerned and wish to alleviate risk of future issues can choose ongoing reviews to be performed more frequently, such as biannually or even quarterly. For those that wish to take frequent proactive measures, ongoing reviews can be provided on a monthly basis.
Regardless of the regularity, ongoing reviews performed by ADA FOR WEBSITES Web Solutions will include both automated testing and manual testing. Automated testing, is performed with the use of automated software and scripts. Manual testing consists of a human review and click-throughs of pages, media and documents. It’s a hands-on approach. Our examinations can include user-testing performed by users from a varied background and technical proficiency including users with disabilities. Following each review, an updated Letter of Conformance will be provided to the organization. A Letter of Conformance provides a description of the processes that were completed to maintain web accessibility compliance standards. It can also be used to defend an accessibility legal claim in the case when one occurs. With an updated Letter of Conformance, you both minimize your organization’s risk and also demonstrate to the public that you took, and continue to take, proactive measures seriously to ensure equal access to all individuals.
