Audits for accessibility provide insights if the already build product conforms to the global standard WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines).
This is often already too late as the product has been build already, but there are various motivations for desiring an audit, like:
- Ensuring adherence to standards during the launch planning process.
- Enhancing customer experiences to achieve business goals.
- Evaluating the potential risks associated with legal actions.
- Evaluating the usability of your digital tools for your employees who work remotely.
Although we believe audits are more a necessity than a fix for creating accessible products, customer experience is of utmost importance and the key factor in ensuring accessibility.
While compliance with standards required by the European Accessibility Act (EAA), the Web Accessibility Directive (WAD), Section 508, and more, is essential, it is just one aspect of accessibility. We understand the challenges faced by businesses, which is why our audit reports and discussions not only highlight areas of improvement but also provide advice on prioritizing fixes.
This approach aims to maximize customer experience while minimizing legal risks.
Three kind of Audits
Over the years Max Inclusion gained insights to provide accessibility audits.
Our extensive experience has enabled us to create three distinct types of audits.

Directing Accessibility Maturity
Over the past two decades the world has seen an increasingly digitalised society. Now, about 40% of people are not able to participate and enjoy on an equal basis, or not at all, leaving them behind.
What if I tell you together we can bridge the gaps for inclusiveness and accessibility.
The figures haven’t improved much in the last decade, do you have any idea why?
Amongst many reasons this is happening is a consistent lack of quality in awareness, knowledge, skills, communication, designs, websites, apps, and marketing.
