Your Accessibility Management Platform
AMP is a web-based platform that provides a scalable, turnkey solution for meeting your Section 508, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) compliance needs. AMP provides the infrastructure to facilitate all aspects of a successful accessibility compliance program.
AMP’s powerful testing engine and work flow, accessible development best practices and extensive training course library allow organizations to quickly and efficiently incorporate accessibility compliance into existing development processes. This ensures organizations have the infrastructure to rapidly conform to accessibility standards in a cost effective fashion. Once a baseline level of conformance has been implemented AMP provides the support to track and maintain compliance over time. It accomplishes all this while providing an on-demand, cloud based ownership model drastically reducing total cost of ownership and overhead for accessibility efforts.
Auditing and Testing
Auditing is a critical aspect of any accessibility program. A successful audit will identify and prioritize all accessibility problems, define a method for addressing those issues, and document the system’s overall compliance with Section 508, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), and other accessibility standards.
AMP provides the ability to perform formal and informal compliance testing across a variety of accessibility standards and technologies. Based on our proven Unified Audit Methodology, AMP’s testing support extends from the ability to perform in-browser, quick page tests to scanning complete enterprise level websites. AMP supports a wide degree of formality in testing from quick, page specific tests to full, formal compliance audits of systems.
Accessible Development Best Practices
AMP’s included best practices library forms a powerful knowledge base for accessibility testing that reduces the industry standards into relevant, actionable conformance criteria and make public accessibility standards easier to understand. Each best practice provides code-level remediation guidance along with examples of compliant and non-compliant code, and linked to specific issues in reports. This is crucial so that you don’t just see an issue, but you’ll understand exactly what needs to be done and how to fix it. Users can also see what standards a best practice is mapped to, and what violations correspond to that best practice.
AMP even allows users to customize best practices and develop their own that relate to their specific organization if desired. The best practices library gives organizations a metrics-based, ordered, and clear approach to digital accessibility.
Enterprise level accessibility initiatives demand comprehensive reports that are tailored to specific roles within an organization. AMP supports this requirement by providing detailed reports across a number of parameters, including views of standards-based compliance levels, best practices for identified violations, affected modules, and violation prioritization. These reports allow organizations to document current accessibility status and compliance rates and create a prioritized project plan for addressing issues.
