How your website is built against accepted industry standards (WCAG) has a real-world impact, such as… 

  • Falling foul of local and international laws (ADA, UK Equality Act, European Public Bodies)

  • Risk of negative brand sentiment and possible reputational damage
  • A downturn in website performance and SEO impact

Accessibility Checker FAQs

The Recite Me Accessibility Audit Checker can be used for a wide variety of website compliance checks. Some of these accessibility checks include issues such as; colour contrast, compatibility for screen readers, font size, headings, titles, image alternative text, website navigation, readability and more. The checker will give you a detailed report on exactly what changes you need to implement and how to do it. With an accessibility score assigned to your website’s design after each scan, which you can work on improving.

Becoming WCAG compliant on your website is important for a variety of reasons. It helps ensure you do not fall foul of local and international laws mitigating the chance of potential lawsuits. Our compliance checker can also provide a wide variety of secondary and indirect benefits. 

Making your website accessible is important as it allows more people to use it by reducing accessibility problems. In turn increasing revenue and boosting your brand reputation through improved user experience. 

There are four main standards that our accessibility tool checks for. These standards are outlined in the WCAG 2.1 accessibility guidelines and are as follows:

  • Perceivable
  • Operable
  • Understandable
  • Robust

Perceivable refers to addressing factors such as providing text alternatives to images and other non-text multimedia. In addition to making the website easier to see, the use of our colour contrast checker is great for this. 

Operable refers to usability aspects, our accessibility analyser will look for issues such as navigation. Is the website fully explorable from a keyboard, can users easily find content, is there any content that could cause seizures or physical reactions and more.

Understandable looks at the readability aspect of the website. Checks are in place for descriptive labels, ensuring the language content is written in is clear and having features of the website behave in a consistent way.

Robust refers to the website’s ability to maximize compatibility with a wide variety of assistive tools. Our web page accessibility analyser will check your website to see how easy it is for assistive technologies to read and interpret the content. Ensuring specific mark-up and code is written in an accessible manner.

Our website accessibility checker doesn’t just detect the issues. It highlights a specific roadmap to fix the issues, which makes it significantly easier to update your website to be more accessible. The suggestions are easy to implement, we show you what to fix for the biggest improvement against your internal efforts and time.

Additionally, our checker allows you to download an accessibility report. This lets you see the progress that has been made, on your journey to creating a fully inclusive website. The report is easily shareable and can be emailed to yourself or members of your team directly from the checker itself.

The Recite Me Checker audits back-end and front-end web development processes by running 396 separate compliance scans in line with WCAG 2.1

The Scanner finds issues and analyzes your website covering WCAG 2.1 success criteria encompassing: 

  • Site performance overview 
  • Accessibility scoring 
  • Findings per rating 
  • Error breakdown 

The report includes an overview of errors, the locations of errors, and a comprehensive list of actionable errors to fix and check.

There are three main benefits of using our checker to increase the accessibility of your website, these include:

  • Revenue
  • User Experience
  • Compliance & Legalities

Disabled users represent a significant percentage of the total population. Therefore, ignoring this segment means businesses often lose out on a significant chunk of revenue.

Additionally, making your website accessible to all consumers is the right thing to do, especially when it comes to user experience. Access for everyone should be a fundamental value if you want to increase your brand reputation.

This is being recognised globally, with various jurisdictions now implementing laws that require improved access for users with certain disabilities. You can learn more about all of these benefits with our article on why web accessibility is important.

Recite Me designed the checker with users in mind. So, we don’t just tell you the issue, the analyser will provide you with specific step-by-step instructions on how to implement the fixes. You don’t need a lot of web development skills either, the accessibility fixes are tailored to be easy to understand and implement. Once you’ve made the update, you’ll be able to run another scan of your website and check your new WCAG compliance score.
