Accessibility Audit that help your organisation comply with legislation
WCAG-EM Accessibility Audit
We carry out accessibility studies for your website or app. Our tests are carried out based on the WCAG-EM standard and are considered official accessibility tests. We are accredited by the DDAI and work for organizations such as the Dutch government, Banks, Municipality of Amsterdam, Municipality of Rotterdam and RTL Netherlands.
Your website or app is always subject to change. That’s why we perform an annual retest of your website or app. This way we ensure that you continue to comply with the legislation.
Assistance with the accessibility statement
If you wish, we can guide you through the entire process, from start to finish. We can also help with the application and drafting of the accessibility statement.
After delivering the report to the person responsible for the app, we always schedule an evaluation meeting to discuss the report.
What do we investigate?
To get a good idea of the digital accessibility of a website/app, a manual survey is needed. This research has to be done on all domains, subdomains and/or subdomains that form a logical entity with the main domain of the website/app. Using the WCAG-EM method, we take accurate samples, so that there is a complete picture of the digital accessibility of the product.
The investigation aims to uncover any parts which do not meet the standard of WCAG 2.1, level AA. In the report we precisely indicate the points on which the website/app does not yet (completely) comply.
Testing is largely done manually and by means of random samples. The results are noted per sample. For example: if a certain accessibility problem occurs on several pages, then one or several examples are given.
At the beginning of the research we look at which “type” of pages and content are relevant for this sample. For example, the homepage, a frequently asked questions page, video and image material, PDF files and content pages. Which these are and the corresponding results will be clearly included in the survey.
Besides applying the WCAG-EM, we also give personal advice based on our expertise. This means that we also look at parts of the website/app that are not included in the guidelines, but which in our opinion should be changed to better serve the target group.
What we deliver
We deliver an accessibility report that meets the WCAG-EM standards. WCAG-EM is an evaluation method to test the accessibility of a website/app. This method has been developed by the W3C. For more information: https://www.w3.org/WAI/test-evaluate/conformance/wcag-em/ We also deliver an accessible pdf which you can publish on your website/app.
After delivering the report to the person responsible for the website/app, we plan an evaluation meeting. During this meeting (which lasts approx. 1.5 hours), where suppliers are also invited, we give a short course in digital accessibility in half an hour. This leads to people becoming aware of all kinds of limitations that affect digital accessibility, which results in more support when discussing the results and the plan afterwards. We use the remaining hour to discuss the report, the findings and the proposed solutions. Together we will determine the time frame within which these issues will be resolved.
After completion of the study and approval of the stakeholders, we support the drafting of the accessibility statement and its addition to the accessibility register. We ensure that the accessibility statements are drawn up in accordance with the model required by the Digital Accessibility Government Decision. This ensures that the statement is verified by Logius and that no deviations are found.
A reinvestigation takes place within three months after the discussion of the report. As soon as the person responsible for a website/app indicates that the findings have been resolved, we perform a re-examination to check whether the findings have been resolved in such a way that they comply with the WCAG guideline.
We can deliver the report 3-4 weeks after approval of the quotation.

What we do
We want to make a sustainable contribution to the digital accessibility of digital products. This means not only carrying out accessibility studies based on the WCAG-EM, but also, for example, providing awareness training.
