Assessment Service

Our services aid organizations in identifying the necessary actions required to achieve compliance with WCAG, PDF/UA, and/or HHS standards for their documents.

To achieve full compliance with accessibility regulations, organizations must first assess the amount of effort required to meet the desired level of compliance. This necessitates a thorough and unbiased examination of their current assets to determine their current state.

Our Assessment Service delivers a comprehensive analysis of an organization’s digital documents, and optionally, websites, to determine their current level of accessibility. We evaluate and provide a report on the extent to which each document complies with the applicable WCAG, PDF/UA or HHS standard, and subsequently identify the necessary measures to improve compliance. This service can assist in estimating headcount needs, budget parameters, and timeframe projections. Additionally, these assessments can verify the accuracy and completeness of accessibility project work.

Our assessment service, backed by a variety of powerful tools and our team’s extensive expertise, can efficiently determine the necessary effort to accomplish your document accessibility goals. This assessment can evaluate the static documents on your website or the transactional documents that you distribute to clients, employees, constituents, and customers, and if necessary, both types of documents. Additionally, we can evaluate your website itself if required.

Our automated tools allow us to perform a technical assessment rapidly, and we can also conduct a Customer Experience (CX) check, which encompasses an evaluation of asset usability for individuals who are blind and/or have low vision. Our assessment can be tailored to your precise requirements.
