Peripheral photo of two people working together at the desk so all you can see is hands holding a paper and pen, a laptop, and some papers.In our last post, Conformance Statements and You: Part 1, we discussed why it's important to have a Conformance Statement.  In part two we will discuss how one goes about getting a conformance statement.  

First, it is important to develop a Conformance Statement with a third party.  Just as it is important to have a third party conduct financial audits for your company, a Conformance Statement from a third party affirms the validity and accuracy of your company's statement. A third party that is a knowledgeable expert in the area of web accessibility provides credibility and authority to the description of your web site's level of accessibility.

If you need a Conformance Statement consultation, Deque will audit the applicable parts of your products and web content using a cost-effective process comprised of both automated and manual testing.We will provide guidance on how to fix your products and web content with detailed, actionable feedback for your development team.  And finally, we will re-audit your products and web content after you complete the recommended fixes.
