Catalyst IT is a supplier on the New Zealand Government’s Marketplace for Web Accessibility. Since 2019, all public service and non-public service agencies must meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 at Level AA; Catalyst can help you meet WCAG standards.
Ensuring your website meets WCAG standards means your website will be accessible to all. Web accessibility enables people with disabilities to perceive, understand, navigate, interact with, and contribute to the web. It is also a characteristic of a good website and with the proper knowledge and tools, is easy to implement.
Most importantly, everyone - regardless of ability - can benefit from it. Catalyst can help you with accessibility audits, training and consultancy services. As an IT company, we take accessibility seriously, embedding it into our development projects from the beginning, right from requirements gathering, wireframing, visual design, acceptance criteria through development and QA.
Accessibility audit services
To help you benchmark how accessible your site is, we can audit your site against WCAG 2.1 criteria. We’ll work with you to define which webpages are best to audit, and will provide:
- an in-depth report detailing which elements on which pages have failed WCAG, and how best to fix the issues found
- a summary report outlining your pass rate
- a one hour consultation after the audit to answer any questions you may have
Contact our Wellington office about your accessibility audit needs
