The Shortcomings of Internal Audits
More than ever, companies are seeing the benefits of hiring an outside consultant to audit their website and validate their accessibility status. Although you may be content with the internal audits performed by your organization’s staff, it would be impossible to judge their impartiality without seeking the advice of an independent credible external company. Debugging software is hard. Staying abreast of ever-changing guidelines (have you read the working draft of WCAG 2.1 yet) and finding the flaws in your own code is complex, error-prone, and time consuming.
ADASure can help identify areas where your auditing practices are no longer compliant with the WCAG 2.0 standards. We can also pinpoint where your compliance efforts may be lacking. Our unique, four-step process ensures that your digital presence (websites, mobile apps, eCommerce) is 100% compliant and we keep up on all of the guidelines and requirements so you don’t have to.
We’ve previously mentioned all of the recent lawsuits that have been filed just this summer. If your company was sued due to the lack of compliance, your accessibility statement would carry more weight if your site has been vetted by an external company. Since an external auditor has no reason to be anything but honest about the status of your web accessibility, you can trust the independence of the audit and the recommendations being made.
Having a high quality company work on your behalf can help eliminate potential catastrophic legal problems and it allows for a great user experience for everyone!
