Accessibility Testing and Auditing

Our accessibility audit reports provide straightforward feedback for engineers, designers, product owners, and managers. With comprehensive, customized, and data-rich reporting, your team can keep shipping.

⚡️ Lightning Fast Results

Pulp delivers audits within days, not weeks. Our auditors are highly technical and focus on one client at a time, allowing us to deliver results on pace with the modern software development lifecycle.

Actionable Reports for Modern Teams

Agile teams are focused on delivery. They don't have time to groom, triage, and prioritize the long list of issues generated from an accessibility audit. Our Audit Reports always include size, priority, classification, and remediation instructions for each violation. We make it easy to get the work in front of your product teams and out the door.

What's Included?

Using two different screen readers, plus our own proprietary inspection automation, we inspect every last piece of your product for accessibility issues. For every issue, we document what went wrong, why it matters, and how to fix it. An auditor might even experiment in the browser's dev console to make sure the recommended fix will work. We also include the specific criteria involved, level (if applicable), and links to tutorials or resources to help your team fix the problem.

Once the audit is complete, you'll receive a detailed audit report document, high-level executive summary, and an optional half-hour debrief call with your auditor to discuss findings and answer questions.

Audit Plans

Comprehensive

Ideal for product launches, lawsuits, or new accessibility initiatives.

  • Audit your entire product at once
  • Starting point for a VPAT or Accessibility Statement
  • Understand legal risk and vulnerability
  • Recommended frequency: annual

Ongoing

For redesigns, new features, platform upgrades, or incremental improvements.

  • Audit individual pages or components
  • Catch accessibility issues before they hit production
  • Same-sprint delivery
  • Recommended frequency: monthly

Accessibility Conformance Documentation

Invite users behind the scenes and show them how hard you work to design tools that delight and inspire. Include a dynamic roadmap and create a living document that moves as fast as you do.

With an accessibility statement, you're making usability part of your mission. Reduce exposure and provide transparency around your accessibility initiatives.

What we offer:

  • ACR or VPAT document based on audit results
  • Public-facing accessibility statement
  • AODA Accessibility Plan Documentation

We can help assemble an Accessibility Conformance report in VPAT format, to WCAG 2.1, AODA, US Section 508, and/or EU EN 301 549 criteria along with your audit report. This can serve as a living document reflecting your path to conformance. It's like your accessibility resumé.

With rigorous testing documentation, comprehensive accessibility conformance reporting, and a remediation roadmap, you're heading off compliance issues before they arise. You're clear about any areas where accessibility conformance is not supported and you're out front as an organization that puts users first.

Reduce exposure and give users transparency and a path for feedback around your accessibility initiatives.

Accessibility Consulting and Support

Accessibility Training and Workshops

Until your team can build accessible software on their own, your organization will always require external help, complicating planning and straining resources. Our training courses get your team on their way to achieving and maintaining conformance independently.

Pulp staff has conducted accessibility coaching and training for corporate and conference audiences ranging from highly technical engineering staff to designers and content creators.
