WCAG 2.0, Section 508 and Canada’s Standard on Web Accessibility

Web Accessibility Compliance

The importance of web accessibility standards has been recognized around the world. Making sure your company is compliant with the latest standards can help you gain valuable market share and avoid the risk of costly litigation, settlements and loss of reputation and business.

Compliance Sheriff Verifies Web Accessibility Compliance

Compliance Sheriff empowers content managers to work collaboratively with online content developers and website architects to monitor and verify corporate standards for web accessibility compliance. It provides automated reporting to managers and developers to determine whether the information on any internal or external online portal complies with Section 508 and WCAG 2.0 standards. 

Compliance Sheriff scans web content and documents against over 172 out-of-the-box accessibility checks such as images, forms, and dynamic content interactions, plus seventeen Alt text quality checks. Both structured and unstructured content is verified for accessibility including Microsoft Office and Adobe documents (.DOC, DOCX, .XLS, XLSX, .PPT, PPTX, .PDF, .SWF and .MSG).
