CFA Australia provides several accessibility auditing options to check the accessibility of your digital content.
We provide app and website audits, as well as comprehensive operational (whole of organisation) assessments. As a W3C member and an active participant in the creation of accessibility guidance with the W3C, CFA Australia are well-placed to undertake digital content work with strict conformance.
Heads-Up Accessibility Audit
This is a basic assessment against the 13 WCAG 2.2 guidelines. While not intended to be a detailed assessment against all success criteria, it can provide you with a basic and affordable overview of the most prominent website accessibility issues and how to fix them. It includes visual checks, screen reader evaluation and testing with an automated tool for up to 10 sample pages. If you’re trying to decide whether to renovate or replace your website and only need to know the essentials, this is the audit for you.
This is an accessibility audit based on all success criteria of the internationally recognised WCAG 2.2 Level AA standard as recommended by the Australian Human Rights Commission (ARHC). The auditing processes are carried out in accordance with the W3C Website Accessibility Conformance Evaluation Methodology (WCAG-EM) 1.0. to give your website WCAG certification if all success criteria are met.
The WCAG-EM is a five-step evaluation process that includes:
- Comprehensive testing of sample pages on multiple web browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Edge and Safari on devices running Windows, MacOS, iOS/iPadOS and Android respectively.
- Assistive technology tests such as the Narrator, NVDA, VoiceOver and TalkBack screen readers along with third-party tools such as Dragon Naturally Speaking; and
- An assortment of accessibility testing tools and code validation checks.
Full audits also include two retests of any errors that at no extra charge to help you achieve WCAG certification for your website.
Sample pages and pricing are based on a three-tier system for small, medium and large organisation size respectively. All audits provided by CFA Australia include people with disability at every stage of the process.
Digital Access Maturity Assessment (DAMA)
We all accept that a bicycle helmet needs to be built to the ISO safety standard. However, most people don’t know there is also an ISO standard for ensuring ICT products and services are accessible. DAMA is based on current W3C and ISO maturity models and standards to ensure your organisation’s digital processes are completely inclusive. An assessment can be undertaken of your entire organisation’s work processes in line with ISO and W3C standards to ensure inclusion.
