Next Steps

After completing an accessibility audit of your website, 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.


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 website 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 website 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 sizable backlog of tasks being created all at once.

An accessibility audit is where someone manually goes through your website and looks for accessibility issues under WCAG 2.0 AA or 2.1. A typical accessibility audit starts at $3,500 and there are various factors that will impact the cost like consulting, VPAT, follow-up audit, training etc.

A typical accessibility audit for ten pages will take 2 weeks, this period is based on the complexity of the pages and other factors like number of unique templates, dynamic components, VPN access etc.

It is not feasible to perform a manual website accessibility audit on an entire website. Our accessibility audit specialists will usually work with you to identify exactly which pages to check, but start by putting a sample together to give them an idea of what’s on your
website. Your sample should include:
• Your site’s homepage
• Content pages that are mostly text based
• Images, video and audio content
• Interactive tools and transaction, like forms
• Pages including login functionality, if your website has them
• PDFs and other document types you have
• Dynamic content like pop-up windows
• Navigation pages, including your sitemap and pages with search functionality

It’s not usually feasible to audit the entire website which might run into thousands of pages. You should focus on:
• Getting a representative sample of your page templates and content
types tested
• Any key interactive features
• Your most common or important user journeys
• Any particularly problematic areas you’ve seen in testing

Our accessibility specialists will perform accessibility audit of your website against WCAG 2.1 (known as conformance testing), to make sure it meets the WCAG 2.1 AA accessibility standard. The audit also include testing with assistive technologies like screen readers and magnification software.

Once a web accessibility audit is performed and the report is delivered, developers need to go through the audit to understand the issues and the steps needed to address accessibility problems. Developers will most likely want to arrange a time with our accessibility experts to answer any questions that arise. Once their questions are answered, developers will go ahead and fix the issues in the accessibility audit report and will likely want a Follow-Up Audit to confirm that the fixes have successfully removed the barriers identified and that no new barriers have been introduced.

Once the Follow-Up Audit confirms that all of the issues identified in the initial audit report have been addressed, our accessibility experts will start the process  to issue a VPAT [Voluntary Product Accessibility Template], accessibility statement or conformance claim.
