Accessible Web is an industry leader in web accessibility created by a forward-thinking team determined to change how people approach web accessibility. Their mission is to empower agencies and web teams with tools, services, and education so they can tackle web accessibility in an efficient, confident, and profitable way. Accessible Web doesn’t support overlays or web accessibility toolbars and, instead, believes in taking a holistic approach, using the right tools to implement principles of universal design.
Accessible Web RAMP
Their core tool, Accessible Web RAMP, is a web accessibility monitoring and remediation management platform built to streamline your workflow. You can think of this as a hub for your web accessibility work, similar to how you might use SEMRush for your SEO work. With RAMP, you and your team can continuously monitor full websites for WCAG violations and organize, manage, and track these violations as they’re fixed. Free with your account, RAMP’s A11Y Center lets you embed an accessibility policy, user issue reporting form, and past work log on your site in minutes, to let your users know you care about accessibility.
When it’s time to roll up your sleeves and start tackling issues, the Accessible Web Helper Chrome Extension is a great free tool to help spot-check fixes and save time as you work. The Helper Extension scans any webpage for web accessibility errors, including server-side HTML, and delivers detailed context to each of the problems on that page. The exact location of each issue can be highlighted and further pinpointed with provided HTML snippets. The extension also includes a color contrast tool that you can use to check color combinations against WCAG standards.
Teams and web agencies can monitor all of their client’s websites in RAMP for free, though free accounts are limited to 100 page scans per month. With paid RAMP plans, you can scan over 20,000 pages monthly and unlock a variety of powerful capabilities including remediation task recommendations, the ability to export tasks from the Chrome Extension into RAMP, and a comprehensive Guided Manual WCAG Audit Tool.
