Website Accessibility Audit

Project Details

What We Need
  • A list of the common issues along with the prioritization of both severity and impact of the accessibility issues found
  • List of areas that do not meet the Section 508, ADA, WCAG 2.0 guidelines
  • Specific recommendations to improve product accessibility their priority level (low, medium, and high priority)
  • Estimated time needed to fix current compliance issues
Additional Details

We are redesigning our website this fall, and accessibility is a major priority for the redesign. We'd like to get an accessibility audit of our current site in order to identify scope of work and timeline.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a website to which you will have full access, as well as a staff member who is excited about this project and can provide an orientation to our organization and programming and be available to answer your questions and provide anything else you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,212 , allowing us to reach and engage more Georgians in a deep and meaningful way through our online resources and communications.

Our last website redesign was in 2013, and since that time a lot of tools for increasing accessibility have become available. We have incorporated some in a piecemeal fashion but are prioritizing accessibility in our upcoming redesign and want to have a streamlined, focused, coordinated approach. Making all aspects of theater accessible to all Georgians is at the heart of the work that we do, and having an accessible website is a crucial part of making that happen.
