Section 508 requires US federal agencies provide access to technology for all users, regardless of disability. Insites can help you audit and comply with these standards.
Insites has best-in-class Section 508 validation. We are 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 Section 508 test scans every page in your website for issues and highlights them visually:
Your feedback teaches Insites how to analyze your whole website. For example, if you confirm that your navigation is fully accessible, we will not ask you needless questions about other webpages using the same navigation.
This means instead of hundreds of duplicate issues per page, you only deal with the unique ones. And when your website is updated, Insites can identify whether the changes are significant enough to require your attention.
When manual accessibility checks are required, competing tools tend to present a long list of confusing 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 the irrelevant ones. Detailed knowledge of the Section 508 specification is rarely required, and contextual assistance is on hand for all points.
Your team can be emailed scheduled Section 508 reports automatically. You can also choose to divide your websites into segments, and notify people of issues only within their area of concern.
We also offer similar testing for WCAG accessibility.
