ACCESSIBILITY TESTING SERVICE
Web Accessibility Testing and Compliance from AudioEye
Learn how AudioEye’s combination of automated testing and expert human audits can help you find and fix more accessibility issues on your website.
Not All Accessibility Testing Services Are Created Alike
There are several accessibility testing methodologies, from automated testing tools to manual consultants who review each line of code on client websites and mobile applications.
At AudioEye, we use automated accessibility testing and expert human audits to help identify and remediate more of the accessibility violations impacting your visitors:
Our Digital Accessibility Platform delivers over 1.3 billion accessibility remediations to customer websites every day — fixing many of the issues identified by ongoing accessibility testing.
For issues that cannot be fixed with automation alone, our team of certified accessibility experts write custom, code-based fixes or provide guidance to your internal teams on how to fix them at the source.
Not every accessibility issue can be identified or resolved by automated accessibility tools, which is why we offer manual testing to uncover additional accessibility violations and usability issues.

Frequently Asked Questions
- What are the 4 principles of web accessibility?
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) are organized by four main principles, which state that content must be Perceivable, Operable, Understandable, and Robust (POUR).
Each of these principles are designed to support accessibility and equal for people with visual impairments, hearing impairments, cognitive impairments, motor impairments, and more.
- What’s the difference between WCAG 1.0 and WCAG 2.0?
WCAG 2 builds on top of the acceptance criteria laid out in WCAG. The current version of WCAG (2.2) includes 86 total acceptance criteria. Many accessibility laws — including the ADA, AODA, and Section 508 of the Rehab Act — reference the latest version of WCAG as a standard for accessibility compliance.
- What can automated accessibility solutions test?
No automated accessibility solution can find or fix every accessibility issue. However, they can test many of the WCAG criteria, the international accessibility standard used by many accessibility laws such as the ADA, AODA, Section 508 of the Rehab Act, and more.
- Are accessibility audits a legal requirement?
Accessibility laws — such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, or the Unruh Civil Rights Act (CA) — do not explicitly require businesses to conduct accessibility audits.
However, web accessibility consultants can identify and help remediate many of the accessibility issues that can negatively affect the user experience for people with disabilities — and lead to costly legal claims.
- How does a web accessibility toolbar fit into a larger digital accessibility strategy?
Web accessibility toolbars are not designed to identify or remediate accessibility issues like missing image alt text or link descriptions. However, ongoing automated accessibility testing and manual audits from certified accessibility experts can address many of these issues — helping organizations be more accessible and compliant.
