Our Audits: reflecting your needs

At Hassell Inclusion we have delivered remote audits for years. Our experience has led us to develop two types of audit:

  • New Snapshot Audit – a quick and agile way to find out how accessible your website or app is, with an accessibility expert giving you practical insight into how to improve it. Our expert spends two-hours online with your team focusing on one user journey and its key pages, with the opportunity to ask questions throughout. Results in a top ten list of recommended fixes along with a recording of the session.
  • Live Accessibility Audit – a day spent remotely with your development team, focusing on finding accessibility issues in customer journeys or digital tools for staff. Accelerates a review of your current digital product, so you can rapidly support your widest customer base and be there for them at this challenging time. Delivers not just a report on a shelf, but a prioritised list of actions in your bug tracking system so you can make changes now.
  • Standard Accessibility Audit – a remote review of an agreed selection of pages, with a report on where they meet or miss the WCAG 2.1 or 2.0 AA guidelines. And a prioritised action plan to help fix issues and improve compliance.

Why do you want an audit?

Here are the key reasons clients come to us to talk about audits:

  • Remote working: To assess the accessibility of your digital tools for your staff working remotely.
  • Improving Customer Experience: To understand what it’s really like to use your website or mobile app. Are there any pain points for people with disabilities? Helps you improve the overall customer experience to generate revenue and drive business results.
  • Product Development: To check compliance with standards during development or launch planning. Helps you check your development is going in the right direction, and advise on accessibility quality when nearing product launch.
  • Increase Accessibility Understanding in Teams: To drive understanding and importance of accessibility to your development team.
  • Response to Legal Threat: To assess your risk from the threat of legal action, by assessing compliance with accessibility standards and guidelines.
