Website Accessibility Testing

Since the Disability Discrimination Act, accessibility of web-sites has become a hot topic for business that provide websites and portals intended for the general public. For many, accessibility is about making your site accessible to those with disabilities; at Target Testing accessibility means this and more. It is about making your site accessible to the widest range of users on the widest range of devices possible. Some people think this view of accessibility is over the top but we just think we are being meticulous and forward thinking.

Our experienced staff will assess your website against the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) checklist and recommend a level of compliance and where applicable provide recommendations to enable you to achieve the higher levels of compliance. In addition to the WAI checklist we will also check (or simulate) your website using a range of devices used to view websites (including those designed to assist users with disabilities).

Service Highlights

  • Your website is assessed against the current WAI checklist.
  • This service makes use of automated tools complemented by manual checks carried out by experienced analysts.
  • A comprehensive report, written in plain English that details where compliance was achieved and a recommended level of compliance. The report also details the areas where compliance was not achieved and describes how, in plain English, compliance can be achieved. If required a formal presentation can be prepared and delivered.
  • Assessment of your web-site using common non-graphical devices such as screen-readers and text browsers as well as other devices that can be used to view your website.
  • A free re-assessment if remedial work is undertaken as a result of our first assessment.

Service Benefits

  • Our in-depth understanding of the technologies used in developing web-sites and related standards allows us to efficiently assess the level of compliance of your web-site or application.
  • Our comprehensive report is written in plain English so that it is understandable to all. This is backed up with support from the analyst responsible for the report to help you fully understand the report and its implications. The analyst is also available to prepare and deliver a formal presentation of the findings if required.

Target Testing - Performance Testing

Performance testing can be used to answer these and other important questions but for most organisations, conducting a performance test is a daunting task. For many organisations a key barrier to conducting performance testing is the cost of the load and performance testing tools themselves.
