Coding required to alter CSS and Javascript within CMS to maintain functionality

Design and Brand Integrity

No design changes required except the addition of a widget button which matches the brand and color scheme of the existing website. Site visitors that are not affected by disabilities will see the website without any changes. Disabled visitors will access the website through the widget. 

Redesign of website elements must be done to meet WCAG 2.1 standards. 

Time To Implement

Within 24 hours

Each site is rescanned every 24 hours to update new content and changes to website pages.

Re-programming projects take between 6-26 weeks 


The solution requires no maintenance. Software updates for new features, standards updates, and compliance scanning occur in the cloud-based system and do not require any programming interaction or manual coding.

All changes must be manually programmed. This includes any new requirements per the WCAG standards, or any new features and capabilities.

PDF Document Support

Lookit Accessibility will provide PDF remediation services on a per-document basis, using a hybrid approach of AI-Assisted technology and manual document tagging. Turnaround time is typically 5 business days.

PDF documents need to be manually tagged and managed to meet WCAG compliance.


Lookit Accessibility uses AI-Assisted Technology (Artificial Intelligence) to scan images and automatically assign appropriate ALT tags and ARIA tags

ALT Tags must be manually added for each image contained on the website.
