Thank you very much for visiting us today. You are probably here because you are looking for a company that can undertake an Accessibility Audit of your website and you may have found us on a search engine. We are here to help you. We have been designing and building fully accessible websites for 15 years now and we have a thorough understanding of website accessibility. This is why you can be confident that the website accessibility audit we will do for you will be of a very high standard.
We have put together a lot of information on this website that we hope will be very useful to you. You can book yourself in for a free 15-minute chat with us by following this link. You can also follow this link to email us instead or call us on +44-1243-776399 (24 hours).
One of the reasons that there is a lot of information on this website is to help you understand a little more about the process. There is an important difference between automated metrics and manual testing. Both have an important role to play and are both necessary.
With the correct software and a little knowledge, it is possible for anyone to run their websites through some automated checkers and we have, sadly, heard of companies charging in excess of £2,000 to do just that. Unfortunately, even if your website passes some or all of these automated matrices, it may still be inaccessible for some visitors to your website. This is why manual checking by an accessibility expert is so important.
The biggest concern that most businesses and particularly public bodies have, is whether they are legally compliant or not. The natural instinct is to go to the UK Government Website and follow their guidance. Their guidance is very helpful in some respects but it is concerned with ensuring that publicly-funded websites achieve a fairly narrow level of compliance that the UK Government deems to be acceptable.
Unfortunately, it is quite possible to comply with this legislation and still have an inaccessible website. If you have a website, whether you are a private company, a charity or a publicly-funded body, it falls under the Equality Act. This is why having a professional accessibility audit and a professionally written Accessibility Statement is so important. The Accessibility Statement will inform visitors to your website what they can expect whilst at the same time giving you complete protection from litigation.
We are here to help you and to protect you, no matter how accessible or inaccessible your website currently is.
We have been building accessible websites since 2006 and have knowledge that we wish to share as we strive to fulfill our mission:
To change the world, one website at a time.
Thank you again for coming to our website. We look forward to hearing from you.

We have recently worked with a Parish Council. They had contacted us because Parish Councils fall under a Government Directive which requires them to achieve a certain level of accessibility, as a publicly-funded body. They had actually already paid for a website audit but... read more »
