Stop accessibility issues at the source. On-demand automated accessibility testing, seamlessly integrated into your DevOps systems.
Schedule A Demo

ARC API Supports the Accessibility Workflow at Every Stage

On-Demand Testing

Allow developers to conduct on-demand accessibility testing against defined policy prior to releasing code.

Custom Testing

Configure your testing protocol for specific items or page elements using only the tests you need.

Custom Dashboards

Integrates with ARC monitoring and visualizes testing results from the dev environment.


DevOps Integration

RESTful API integrates with any platform that uses open APIs, including CI/CD and bug tracking software.

Set accessibility policy, then leverage the ARC API to enforce conformance.

The ARC Monitoring API is a collection of RESTful APIs that makes it easy for anyone to test the accessibility of their web pages. Our API is a serverless solution for your accessibility testing needs.

It enables you to perform on-demand analysis of your web pages and incorporate accessibility into your CI/CD Platform. Pages are tested using the same accessibility test engine featured in TPGi’s ARC Platform.

How ARC API Empowers Teams

  • The API enables policy-based accessibility testing within a CI/CD pipeline. This ensures zero tolerance, incremental improvements, and sustained performance.
  • RESTful APIs can be easily consumed by IDEs and popular tools, such as bug trackers.
  • Get on-demand accessibility analysis with the ARC Ruleset, as used within the ARC portal. Configure tests as required, using only the tests you need.
  • Find historical performance in ARC Dashboards. View trends and priorities.

ARC API and Zapier integrations simplify the ability to embed accessibility

The ARC API is a powerful tool but when combined with the Zapier integrations, it democratizes the ability to bring automation and scalability to accessibility testing and remediation efforts. Accessibility should be embedded into the places and systems that people work.  ARC API and Zapier integrations is a fast and effective method to achieve this.

Proactive Accessibility Integrated with DevOps saves Time and Money

Chart demonstrating the level of effort for two opposing management styles (Proactive versus Reactive) across the SDLC (plan/design, develop/build, test, deploy/release, monitor, and remediation). Proactive shows higher level of effort in the early stages of plan/design but overall reduced efforts over time versus "reactive" which shows less effort in the early stages but significantly more ongoing remediation effort.

Integrate Accessibility in Your SDLC

Integrating on-demand testing into your organization’s CI/CD process takes a proactive approach by testing success against the same evaluation rulesets prior to the code or content being accepted into the repository.

This ensures that systems, user flows, and other digital content complies with success criteria during the early stages of the development cycle.

ARC API is unique in its ability to integrate teams, systems, and data.

Fully Integrated Solution

ARC API and all ARC components fully integrate to provide a central location to monitor, test, and report on conformance achievements.

Overarching Visibility

Historical data from API testing is presented in ARC Monitoring dashboards, giving program managers full visibility into policy compliance across your SDLC. stages in development.

Policy-Driven Code Acceptance

ARC Monitoring provides the baseline datasets necessary to set policies and then the API can be used to test against them.

ARC Platform API Specifications

Customized Testing:
ARC Analytics is a robust accessibility testing automation service used for scheduled and on-demand testing of your product domains, user flows, pages, and components.

Customized Reporting:
Organize documents, assets, manual testing, and automated testing results in a single location that makes storing, finding, and sharing critical information fast and easy.

Automated Testing:
Accessibility can be challenging in complex environments. Increase your knowledge exponentially by tapping our experts for quick, personalized solutions when needed.

Start small but know you will not outgrow ARC, which is used by small businesses and large enterprises alike. ARC is engineered to provide value at all stages, whether you have a single domain or hundreds of properties.

Complete control over what you test and when. Only pay for what you use. Use scheduled testing for consistent measurement or test on-demand for flexibility and control. Add and remove properties and set frequency as needed.

ARC includes policies, controls, procedures, and technologies to provide secure options for clients with strict security and data privacy requirements.

The Rest API provides real-time testing of webpages using the ARC Analytics engine and on-demand access to historic accessibility test results. Implement policy-driven test initiatives by combining monitoring dashboards with on-demand API testing in your development environments.

Node SDK
The ARC Node SDK allows you to perform local accessibility testing in your CI/CD Platform without having to call a RESTful API. The ARC Node SDK uses the ARC rules engine and all ARC Analytics services and is accessed through a simple evaluation function.
