What is the Acceleration Package?

The Acceleration Package is a multiyear roadmap for compliance that includes annual audits of your digital property, actionable reporting and monitoring, and on-demand expert support.

  • The Acceleration Package provides audits in an agile model for a more collaborative and constructive experience.
  • Refined over decades of experience, this model includes ongoing support for helping you fix issues and monitoring software to set you up for lasting success.

Why other audit approaches don’t work

  • The standard one-off approaches to accessibility and audit projects may achieve temporary progress, but leave you susceptible to future risk.
  • Any success from ad hoc projects is quickly undone and teams must start over with new investments each time—causing more hassle and time spent overall.

The better way

The Acceleration Package supports a more structured, ongoing approach that prevents legal risk from reappearing over time.

This model saves your team valuable time and delivers greater efficiency.

  • Accessibility testing is only helpful if you are able to do something with the results
  • The Acceleration Package allows Level Access to partner with you behind simply finding problems, so you get a remediation plan and guidance through fixing issues
  • The close partnership helps your team build their knowledge and become better informed about their work

What is the Acceleration Package?

The Acceleration Package is a multiyear roadmap for compliance that includes annual audits of your digital property, actionable reporting and monitoring, and on-demand expert support.

  • The Acceleration Package provides audits in an agile model for a more collaborative and constructive experience.
  • Refined over decades of experience, this model includes ongoing support for helping you fix issues and monitoring software to set you up for lasting success.

One-time and ad hoc audit approach where issues fixed after initial audit to reach compliance can quickly become undone after changes or updates and this pattern continues without regular testing

Why other audit approaches don’t work

  • The standard one-off approaches to accessibility and audit projects may achieve temporary progress, but leave you susceptible to future risk.
  • Any success from ad hoc projects is quickly undone and teams must start over with new investments each time—causing more hassle and time spent overall.

  • The Acceleration Package allows Level Access to partner with you behind simply finding problems, so you get a remediation plan and guidance through fixing issues
  • The close partnership helps your team build their knowledge and become better informed about their work

Acceleration approach where we help you fix issues after the audit to get compliant and supply guidance and support along with regular audits to keep you compliant

What is included in the Acceleration Package?

  1. Full digital accessibility audits with manual, functional, and automated testing delivered in a digital report each year
  2. Included regression testing (a ‘re-audit’) in the first year to confirm that issues discovered in the initial audit were fixed correctly
  3. Web monitoring software to spot new issues that commonly reappear over time and to measure total progress
  4. On-demand consulting and guidance from our specialists for solving issues or other challenges

The Auditing: Data-driven methodology

  • In the beginning, we will deploy Access Analytics to get an early read on the web property, identifying the areas with the most traffic and easily-detectable issues
  • This information is important for project planning purposes and will inform the audit activities
  • Therefore, Access Analytics allows a more objective approach to auditing that focuses on areas with higher traffic, known issues, and greater risk

Testing sprints

  • Level Access audits follow an agile model by dividing the testing into separate sprints with results and analysis delivered to your team after each one
  • Level Access works with you to determine what pages or content should be evaluated and in what order
  • The agile model provides the flexibility to adjust priorities for later testing based on the latest results delivered

Insightful analysis and useful results

  • The agile approach ensures you have a prioritized report of the latest discovered issues after each testing sprint
  • At the conclusion of every testing sprint, Level Access will discuss the findings with your team and use the latest results and analysis to plan the next round of testing
  • Test results are delivered in sortable views with various filtering options for quick analysis
  • For example, this could be a list of violation types grouped according to their corresponding best practice with their number of discovered instances and Severity rating

Continuing with annual audits

  • Digital properties are rarely static, so it’s critical that accessibility is regularly evaluated to account for any changes to the user experience that may undo your work over time
  • We will conduct additional audits in years two and three to account for any updates, new content, releases, redesigns, or other changes

The Reporting: Simple and configurable

After each audit, your team works off a highly configurable report in AMP that’s designed to help you understand and fix issues as efficiently as possible.

Sorting and Filtering options for AMP violations reports, like where issues exist, best practice violated, severity, noticeability, difficulty involved in fixing, issue description, media type, fix status, and more

Clear, manageable results

  • Other audit reporting methods can feature largely static and overwhelming ‘dumps’ of issues, or even just CSV files.
  • Our audit reports are designed to help your team understand the results so they can build knowledge and become better informed about their work

The Support: On-demand experts and insights

  • Without guidance on how to fix problems, you only know what you’ve done wrong – not how to do better
  • That’s why support is such a big part of the Acceleration Package
  • After an audit is completed, Level Access supports you in resolving issues together with on-demand support via Access Advisor
  • Get assistance for requests like AT testing on specific pages, help on fixing certain issue types, and much more

Help is always available

Access Advisor allows our experts to answer your questions, help you stay on top of new issues, and assist as needed.

Continuous monitoring

Access Analytics will continue to monitor for issues over time and provide valuable insights. On top of this, we will be checking in each month to review progress, make recommendations, and establish next steps based on your needs.

Along with annual audits, we still provide Access Advisor support each year to help your team stay on top of any new issues and keep your digital property compliant.

  • Access Analytics will continue to detect common but noticeable issues which often arise between audits or other related work
  • Your team can use Access Analytics to analyze important patterns or trends to communicate to leadership or other internal stakeholders
