Why Accessibility Testing is so Important

Iterators are Trusted Testers (TT) certified by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), ensuring that websites and mobile apps are accessible. The testing provides a code inspection-based approach for determining software and website conformance to Section 508 and WCAG 2.2 standards. We work on small projects, such as start-ups, medium projects like the Boston.gov website https://www.boston.gov/news/bu... and large enterprise software projects. We also work with the federal government on our awards from the Library of Congress since 2021 - present.

At present there are three levels of WCAG Level A, WCAG Level AA and WCAG Level AAA

Level WCAG A is the oldest level of conformance and the most basic level for legal requirements.
Level WCAG AA is the second level of conformance under WCAG 2.1 Section 508 standards require A and AA for successful conformance.
Level WCAG AAA is the latest installment, under WCAG 2.2 AAA and has nine new features.

Benefits of Trusted Testers

  • Promotes a shared understanding of Sec 508 and WCAG standards
  • Unifies the test process
  • Unifies the set of test tools
  • Unifies test results reporting
  • Test results can be shared for common applications (e.g., Shared Services, COTS, etc.)
  • Supports IT governance by integrating Section 508 into the development and acquisition lifecycle
  • Promotes the successful adoption of the changes required to incorporate WCAG features within an agency
  • Improves the ability for developers to reproduce test results, which expedites remediation of nonconformance.
