    Website Accessibility Services

    A-2-Z’s preliminary review of your website analyzes the site templates to confirm whether there are barriers in violation of WCAG 2.1 Level AA standards. We report on the results and summarize the findings, detailing the issues so that solutions may be implemented and accessibility restored. Re-testing is then undertaken to verify that the accessibility barriers have been taken care of. After rechecking the site and making sure that it is compliant, A-2-Z provides a letter of validation, which serves as a legal document in confirming that the tested screens do not pose an accessibility barrier.

This document, known as the Letter of Conformance, explains the steps that were taken to bring the website up to acceptable standards. This letter serves a legal purpose in providing proof that our clients actively support full internet accessibility without barriers to anyone, regardless of physical or cognitive limitations.
