accessWidget utilizes two applications that work together to remediate your website. The accessibility interface is responsible for the UI and design-related adjustments, while the AI-powered process handles the complex requirements — optimization for screen readers and keyboard navigation.

Going beyond  automation and regulation  is key for inclusion

More than a billion people with disabilities need to interact with the digital world, just like everyone else. Here’s why going beyond automation and regulation is the right approach:

  • People with disabilities need to access the web just like anyone else to be included in modern society
  • Expand market reach and attract more customers
  • Meet legal requirements such as ADA and AODA

By streamlining accessibility, accessiBe’s solutions empower businesses of all sizes to take the inclusive approach and comply with ADA & WCAG.

Media Accessibility Services

Simple, accurate and fast Closed  Captions  services
 
Closed Captions allow deaf or hard-of-hearing individuals to experience a video to its fullest. Make your videos appeal to a much wider audience with full, time-synchronized text and background sound descriptions.

 

Get more value from your media with Audio  Transcriptions  services

To gain the most out of your media, we go beyond text speech-to-text. We include speaker IDs, background settings, and other essential non-speech sounds to accompany the standard word-by-word text transcriptions!

Provide descriptive narration of key visual elements with Audio  Descriptions  services

For blind users and those with visual impairments to enjoy your videos, it’s essential to depict vital visual elements that are not spoken or heard. Body language, actions, on-screen text, and scene changes are crucial pieces of info to describe!

 

 

File Accessibility

With accessiBe’s scalable file services, organization benefits are tremendous:

  • Public companies can streamline the accessibility work on financial reports and complete them online, on time.
  • Hospitality businesses can have properly accessible menus and itineraries accessible for all guests. Regardless of ability.
  • Governmental & educational organizations can provide better access to their services for people with disabilities.
  • Architects & real-estate companies can have their blueprints and marketing brochures available to everybody.

Standard PDF, PPT, and Excel files are usually not accessible. This means that people with disabilities using assistive technologies like screen-readers cannot correctly read them and comprehend the content.

VPAT Section 508 Compliance

The Voluntary Product Accessibility Template is a 508 compliance requirement. The VPAT discloses the current accessibility level of an application and is used for creating an ACR (Accessibility Conformance Report).  

 

Which businesses need a VPAT? 

Government agencies and government-funded organizations need to be section 508 compliant and require your product to disclose its accessibility level using a VPAT. Our service also includes an ACR (Accessibility Conformance Report). You’ll need a VPAT if your organization meets one of the below:

  • Your organization is a government agency
  • Your organization receives government funding
  • Your organziation is contracted by a government agency
  • You are marketing a product to government agencies

Expert Audit

Our expert team will evaluate and examine the accessibility level of your website’s UI, design, source code, and usability, and will provide a report that focuses on three key areas:

  • Screen reader and assistive technology compatibility
  • Keyboard-only navigation, operation, and orientation
  • UI, design, and content implementations

The report shows, ordered by severity, which areas and elements fail usability testing or violate WCAG success criteria and will suggest steps for your development team to take. Approaching the report as a to-do list will give you a structured remediation workflow.

Inspection for Performance & Integration

The inspection process includes reviewing the modified code on your site with accessWidget enabled, ensuring that the AI hasn’t missed anything, and looking for things like uncaptioned videos and inaccessible PDF documents. The inspection makes sure you’re getting the most from accessWidget.
