How accessible is your company or government organisation's website or application? What steps do you still need to take to comply with the WCAG or European accessibility law?
We assess the usability of your website or app for people with disabilities or limited digital skills with an Accessibility (WCAG) Audit.
In addition to an overview of violations of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (Version 2.1 Level AA), our reports include Easy to understand and practical advice that we custom write for designers, front-end developers, editors, and communications professionals.
Digital accessibility is not only mandatory for government websites; most websites and apps offering digital services will have to comply with the European Accessibility Act starting in 2025.
Who is working with us?
Our research reports have been the starting point for improvement projects of websites of large and small organizations, including The European Ombudsman, the Dutch Ombudsman, VDAB, UZ Leuven, FOD Economie, Antwerpen.be, Leuven.be, Gent.be, Moorslede.be and others.

- Each audit is conducted by at least one IAAP Certified Web Accessibility Specialist. The IAAP is the International Association of Accessibility Professionals, an independent trade organization.
- We test a sample of up to 15 pages or 15 different components.
- Thanks to an internal process of peer reviewing, we monitor the quality and consistency of all our (follow-up) studies.
- Our testing methodology is inspired by the WCAG Evaluation Methodology of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
- We establish violations based on a combination of manual and semi-automated tests. Our researchers use physical (mobile) devices and have access to the latest versions of assistive tools such as NVDA, Jaws for Windows, VoiceOver and the Android Accessibility Suite. To detect some WCAG violations in your Web site source code, we use Axe Pro and Microsoft Accessibility Insights.
- We document all identified violations with code snippets (where significant) and/or screen shots that we annotate.
- We assess the estimated impact of each breach, state which audiences are impacted and who can fix the problem.
- Finally, we supplement the report with understandable and practical solution advice and links to online resources.
- We write our reports in English, Dutch, French or German. All our reports may contain English language terms, citations and source references.
