Section 508 Accessibility and Compliance
There are several legislations and regulations that mandate companies to make their digital offerings accessible. Our Ability uses a combination of the latest technology, a dedicated team of people with and without disabilities with expertise in accessibility and usability, and a group of designers and engineers to provide feedback on the accessibility of your digital collateral. This not only helps you meet legal compliance but also widens your reach and demonstrates your commitment to inclusion and equitable access for all.
People with disabilities, 15% of the global population, control over $8T of disposable income. Yet, most brands miss out on this market because their websites and apps are inaccessible and incompatible with assistive technologies used by people with disabilities.
We combine AI and heuristic-based automated tests with in-depth manual testing to provide comprehensive testing for your websites, mobile apps or other digital collateral.
Our team of accessibility testers and engineers consists of people with and without disabilities with decade’s of accessibility experience, users of assistive technologies and with certifications such as IAAP Certified Professional in Accessibility Core Competencies (CPACC), Web Accessibility Specialist (WAS), Certified Professional in Web Accessibility (CPWA) & DHS Trusted Tester certification. Having worked at leading MNCs as software engineers also helps us communicate effectively with your developers and provide actionable and concrete technical feedback.
We help you comply with national and international legislations including Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as well as with accessibility standards and requirements including Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), section 508, and EN 301 549.
