The audit was extremely useful actually and was done just in time. I thought everything was more or less ok, but the accessibility issues on my website turned out to be quite serious. Keeping in mind the act, I’m happy I did it before any legal consequences. The team is great!
AODA: Website accessibility audit
We’ll help your website meet accessibility guidelines and become compliant with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. Audit your website and see what needs to be improved.
Why check your website accessibility?
An audit may come in extremely handy for a number of reasons:
To define the risks
By January 1, 2021, websites in Ontario must meet WCAG 2.0 AA level requirements. In this case, it’s important to know what accessibility issues your website currently has and how to best plan its enhancement to avoid legal consequences.
To act proactively
Other parts of Canada are introducing their own accessibility legislation, too. Acting proactively before the accessibility legislation in your province goes into effect allows you to do everything the best way possible.
To settle a lawsuit
If you already faced legal consequences for being a non-accessible website owner and are currently undergoing a remediation process, you need a team of accessibility experts to make your website compliant against the requirements.
To check others’ work
If you already hired contractors and want to be completely sure that all the recommendations were implemented correctly, it’s always a good idea to double-check the website just to stay safe.
In any case, having an accessibility audit is the first step. Don’t leave it until the deadline—otherwise, you may not have time to implement the recommendations.
Which type of accessibility audit to choose?
Although all audits are based on the official guidelines, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Choose the one that suits you best.
Website accessibility check
It’s best to check the current state of your website against the WCAG requirements, detect any accessibility issues, and develop a clear roadmap on how to act on them.
If you already have layouts ready for a new website, start with a detailed design review before moving to the implementation stage. Changing a layout is much cheaper than rewriting the non-accessible code of the whole website.
If your team already implemented another accessibility report, this test will help you check that everything was fixed correctly and works according to the requirements.
What are the deliverables?
With an audit, you get a detailed roadmap for what to do next. We explain the logic behind our recommendations, so you don’t just get a list of vague checkpoints. Whether you decide to implement the audit with us or take it to another team, our main goal is to leave you equipped for success with clear and best-practice remediation recommendations.
The details vary, but each website accessibility test consists of 5 main steps that include checking your website for:
How accessible it is from the keyboard
The contrast level
The text alternatives for the graphic content, labels for buttons, and links
The page structure

It was a pleasure to work with the guys! I was pretty nervous about everything because I had no idea what to expect, but everything was clear and transparent. The team has in-depth knowledge of accessibility and is highly efficient.
Walter Flores review
The team are very easy to communicate with. I’m no accessibility expert but I understood whatwas done when, and working with them felt good. The report they did was implemented by my team, and they say it was professional. Recommend the team, it feels like they love what they do.
