  • The latest standards: we assess digital content against the industry-leading Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 at the AA level

Next Steps

After completing an accessibility audit of your mobile application, you have a list of accessibility violations to address. It’s common, especially during first-round reviews, to find a significant number of accessibility issues when getting started with accessibility. Let’s get to work on fixing them.

Prioritize 

Not all accessibility violations are equally problematic, nor does every barrier require equal effort to resolve. Major barriers might be able to be handled in a couple minutes, while minor inconveniences could require significant creativity and effort to address. When you request an expert accessibility evaluation from HolisticA11Y, issues are prioritized as follows:

  • High – This issue will fully block some users from a core function of the service or significant portion of content. 
  • Medium – This issue causes a noticeable inconvenience to some users, but can be worked around with effort. 
  • Low –  This issue might cause a minor inconvenience to some users. 

Seek Expert Help

Sometimes accessibility barriers can be easy to identify, but the solutions to those barriers are less clear. For consultation on specific issues with regard to the accessibility audit report, leave us a message and our accessibility experts would get back to you. 

Review the Work

Especially with code changes, accessibility fixes for one issue may inadvertently cause issues elsewhere. Re-review your content or service after making any changes to confirm no new errors were introduced. Get a re-audit of the mobile application once the fixes are in place, our accessibility specialists will validate all the code fixes.

Plan for Future

Be proactive in ensuring the accessibility of your digital presence. It’s easier and provides a better user experience to be accessible upfront via training and awareness than it is to be continually looking backwards at what is currently broken. After completion of mobile application accessibility evaluation and fixing the issues found, we encourage you to go beyond and take the next steps to minimize any remediation efforts you need to make in the future.

Schedule Accessibility Audits

Technology is always changing. Scheduling regular accessibility audits will help you identify potential barriers before they have the chance to impact your users, and will prevent a sizeable backlog of tasks being created all at once.
