WCAG Audits and Remediation
We Help Make the Internet Accessible for All
WSD provides Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) Audits, Consultation, and Remediation
Although Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) were first published in 1999, businesses and institutions have been slow to adopt the standards. In our digital age, where people rely on the internet for education, research, shopping, scheduling and more – digital inclusivity is a must. Our team can guide you through the process to make your website accessible.
Everyone should be able to access the web, and accessibility makes that possible. Accessibility, whether to brick and mortar buildings, public spaces, or the interwebs, is a human right.
We recommend adhering to accessibility best practices, not because we’re legally bound to but because it’s the right thing to do.
Eliminating obstacles to full access widens the net audience, higher visibility and increased conversions.
Conforming content structure to ADA/WCAG guidelines also has SEO benefits.
What’s the Litigation Risk?
It is wise to protect your business from legal action regarding lack of website compliance.
Recently, there has been an uptick in litigation regarding web accessibility.
How WSD Can Help

Scanning and Audit: WSD can scan your website and provide you with a detailed WCAG assessment. All of our audits include detailed reporting and analysis, plus recommendations for remediation and preventive measures.
Remediation: Our team of developers and designers can make your website compliant with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG AA) standards. https://www.w3.org/WAI/.
