If you’re in the process of planning your web site, this is a perfect time to engage me for accessibility consulting services. I’ll help you work through your design plan, provide comments on development documentation and draft designs, and help you develop your site to maximize your site’s accessibility.
I can work with your existing design and development teams to teach them how to build an accessible web site and help them find the issues in your existing work. If you’re serious about accessibility, you can’t engage an accessibility consultant soon enough — accessibility is at its most effective and cheapest at the beginning of your project.
Accessibility Seminars & Lectures
Do you already have an established design and development group? I provide custom seminars to educate your content creators, managers, designers, and developers on the aspects of accessibility that they need to know. Seminars can be anywhere from a half-day to a week, depending on the depth of detail you want to address.
In-person training is best; where I can be on-site with your team to guide them through what they need to know — but I can do training virtually, as well.
In-person training is $1000 for a half-day training session or $1500 per day for multiple day training. You’ll need to cover transportation and lodging during the training.
Accessibility Strategy & Planning
If you’re just starting your project, now is the best time to address accessibility. I’ll provide reviews of design and user interface specifications, do code reviews during the course of development, and provide guidance on best practices for the future of your web site.
Accessibility Testing and Compliance Analysis
If your web site is nearing launch or already finished, I offer two types of accessibility reports to help you understand what needs to be done to improve your accessibility.
General Accessibility Testing: I believe that the most critical facet of web accessibility is in the practical needs of users with disabilities. My primary accessibility report is based almost entirely on practical experience with your web site: keyboard testing, visual inspection, and screen reader testing. The report includes summaries of basic compliance testing and issues such as HTML validation — but the primary focus is on user experience.
Accessibility Compliance Analysis: If your web site needs to comply with specific accessibility guidelines — as many governmentally funded groups do — then I’m happy to provide a detailed analysis of your site’s compliance with those guidelines.
