Criterion employs accessibility experts who are dedicated to fighting for you. Not just to get your project complaint but to keep it that way.
Our team has been hand-selected because of their expertise in disability testing. From being participants in writing the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) to team members with disabilities, we ensure our auditors are the best equipped to achieve success at the highest levels. In doing this, we have created an unbeatable team of experts.
You’ve probably heard the terms: WCAG 2.1, ADA Compliance, and Section 508 Compliance. The truth is that there is quite a bit of overlap between websites and apps.
ADA Compliance refers to the ‘Americans with Disabilities Act.’ ADA Title II and Title III are the rules that require government agencies and public businesses to be compliant. Anyone with a disability should be able to use your website or app just as someone without a disability. The technical requirements for ADA websites and apps reside in the rules found in WCAG 2.1 and Section 508.
Once our team of experts has tested and confirmed any repairs to your website or app, Criterion goes the extra mile to ensure your long-term compliance. We focus on helping you to maintain your status by providing regular monitoring services.
If it isn’t written, it isn’t compliance! Criterion’s 30-page Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) documents your organization’s due diligence by detailing Criterion’s testing methodology and final WCAG test results. In-house DIY solutions may solve some WCAG accessibility issues, but there is no replacement for a professional and independent audit report by Criterion!
Once our team confirms compliance, we offer training to your employees to keep your development and management teams informed of rules and best practices. By completing our courses, everyone on your team will know how to maintain WCAG compliance. To purchase seat licenses, visit: WCAG eLearning Courses
Included in Criterion’s testing service is a full year of management support. Our dedicated professionals will answer legal or compliance questions for an entire year. We always remind our clients that any change made to a website or app (regardless of size) could remove your site from accessibility compliance. Because of this, it is essential to have a trained staff, scheduled audits, and a support team of professionals.
The requirements for ADA web accessibility are a subset of rules contained in WCAG 2.1. WCAG 2.1 includes three levels of compliance that vary in difficulty. With this, we frequently answer whether specific standards are applicable. Through our 23 years of experience in the compliance arena, you can guarantee we have seen and heard it all. Our job is to understand the laws so we can make it easy for you and your team to do the easy work of making the necessary repairs. Look at our processes and staff; you will understand that having a partner in ADA Web Compliance goes a long way.
