Review Audit Results and Develop the Corrective Action Plan
Following the web accessibility audit process for ADA, WCAG 2.1 & Section 508 compliance, your organization will collaborate with AKEA Web Solutions through our technical teams, with either internal or contracted technical teams. A comprehensive analysis of audit findings will be provided, along with a detailed report outlining all areas where web accessibility issues were identified. Through the development of a Corrective Action Plan, high-impact issues will be noted and prioritized for remediation according to what changes can have the biggest impact most rapidly.
Implementation of the Corrective Action Plan
Following this process, AKEA Web Solutions will sit down with you to further discuss our findings, providing an in-depth review and allowing you an opportunity to discuss any questions you may have. When you work with our team, you can be confident that no question will be left unanswered. All proposed solutions must be approved before moving forward and once all issues are reviewed and suggested repairs are agreed upon, AKEA Web Solutions will work with you to develop a detailed plan to address these identified web accessibility issues going forward. Rather than just communication the problems are, we will provide guidance on how to fix these issues, as well as an estimation of resources that are required to address these needs.
Remediation, Review and QA
AKEA Web Solutions makes education and informing on accessibility concepts a priority throughout the accessibility process. As repairs are completed, they will be implemented in production, otherwise known as a live environment. By introducing them to a live environment, we can monitor usage and determine that no issues have arisen. Once all repairs have been completed, we will complete a final review to verify your website is in compliance with universally accepted website guidelines, such as WCAG 2.1, as well as government-issued guidelines, such as Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Once the final review is complete and the website is deemed compliant, AKEA Web Solutions will issue a document regarding the website’s accessibility, otherwise known as a Letter of Compliance, which summarizes the types of features and level of compliance that was achieved in order to conform to accessibility standards and guidelines. A WCAG 2.1 Conformance Claim will also be provided within the letter, which indicates that your website meets WCAG 2.1 success criteria. By publishing this conformance claim, you can let your current and prospective clients know that you have taken proactive measures to provide for equal online experience for individuals with disabilities.
