The RNIB operate the ‘See it Right’ programme, which you can employ to test the accessibility of your website.
The RNIB See it Right accessible website checkpoints are taken from the WAI guidelines. We build websites using the same guidelines but we do aim to build the sites to a higher compliance with the guidelines than the RNIB.
See it Right checkpoints set a standard of accessibility exceeding WAI single ‘A’ and close to WAI ‘AA’. We at Hobo aim to build build all our website templates to ‘AAA’.
As well as requiring compliance with WAI priority one checkpoints, the requirements for gaining the RNIB Accessible Website logo incorporate a range of priority two and three checkpoints which have particular relevance to users with sight problems.
‘The See it Right checkpoints have been selected because they are realistic, achievable and have the highest impact on the accessibility of a website.’
Unfortunately, the RNIB See It Right costs hundreds of pounds to purchase for your business, and you need to pay every year to keep the ‘award’. This prohibitive cost is often a block to small business website owners.
If you are employed by a larger, nationwide organization, then it may be advisable that you check out the offer.
