WEB ACCESSIBILITY SERVICES
Comprehensive Web Accessibility Services from AudioEye
Make your website accessible and compliant with AudioEye’s full suite of accessibility tools and services — from the industry’s only real-time accessibility monitoring to expert accessibility audits.
What Are Web Accessibility Services?
There are a number of different approaches to accessibility, including automated accessibility testing and in-depth audits from manual testers. Here’s a breakdown of the different approaches — and why a hybrid approach of automation and manual testing is the only way to test all WCAG criteria.
In-House Experts + Automation
At AudioEye, our hybrid solution combines industry-leading automation with manual audits from certified accessibility experts — helping you test more WCAG criteria and resolve more accessibility issues.
Simple Accessibility Widgets or Plugins
Accessibility widgets and plugins are able to test for some WCAG 2.2 criteria, but they often overstate their ability to make websites accessible or compliant with laws like the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Manual Audit-Only Consultants
Manual audits can test for WCAG criteria that automated tools cannot, but they're expensive and time-consuming. Worse, consultants typically don’t fix issues themselves — putting additional strain on in-house resources.
Accessibility Programs for Every Organization
At AudioEye, we offer a full suite of accessibility tools and solutions to help improve your website’s accessibility and compliance with laws like the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

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.
