Accessibility audits for apps that help your organization comply with legislation.
WCAG-EM Accessibility Audits for Apps
We carry out accessibility testing for your iOS or Android app. Our tests are performed 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 app is always subject to change. That’s why we carry out an annual retest of your app. That way, we ensure that you continue to comply with the legislation.
Help with accessibility statement
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 an app, a manual survey is needed. This research has to be done on all pages in the app which form a logical part of the 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 parts which do not meet the standard of WCAG 2.1, level AA. In the report we precisely indicate the points on which the app does not yet (completely) comply.
Testing is largely done manually and on the basis of random samples. The results are noted for each sample. For example: if a certain accessibility problem occurs on several pages, 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 app that are not included in the guidelines, but which in our opinion should be changed to better serve the target group.
What do we deliver
We provide an accessibility report that complies with WCAG-EM standards. WCAG-EM is an evaluation method that can be used to perform an accessibility test of an 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 that you can publish on your 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 will 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 carry out a reinvestigation to check whether the findings have been resolved in such a way that they comply with the WCAG guideline.
We can deliver the research 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.
