The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) represent the leading international standard for web accessibility. Insites can help you audit and comply with these standards.
Please see our update post about our all-new Accessibility test that has replaced the original WCAG and Section 508 tests.
Insites has best-in-class WCAG validation. We’ve been able to automate checks that other tools cannot, and reduce the amount of manual work required to a fraction of what was previously possible.
Our WCAG test scans your whole website for issues and highlights them visually on every page:
Insites learns from your feedback on one page, and applies that to other pages. For example, if you confirm that a search form is fully accessible, we will not ask you needless questions about other pages using the same form.
This means instead of hundreds of verbose issues per page, you only deal with the unique ones. And when your website is updated, Insites automatically knows if the changes are significant enough to warrant your attention.
Where manual accessibility checks are required, most competing tools present a long list of abstract technical points, such as:
Check 87: script may cause screen flicker.
View the operation of each script in the document.
The script should not cause the screen to flicker.
Insites is designed to instead diagnose problems via an exchange of friendly questions and answers – in this case simply asking:
“Does this page flicker more than twice a second?”
[ Yes ] [ No ]
By answering this question, and others like it, Insites can diagnose genuine issues and discount irrelevant ones. Detailed knowledge of the WCAG specification is rarely required, and contextual help is available for all points.
Your team can be automatically emailed regular WCAG reports on a schedule. You can also choose to divide your websites into segments, and notify people of issues only within their area of responsibility.
Insites covers the latest version of WCAG (2.0) for level A, with support for AA and AAA coming soon. We also offer similar testing for Section 508 accessibility.
