ARC Accessibility Test Initiatives

Set accessibility policies based on your digital content's conformance gaps and automate the measurement of progress against those goals.
Get Started

Establish and Measure Progress with Clear Accessibility Test Initiatives

Customize Accessibility Policies

Define accessibility policies based on your environment to achieve your conformance goals. Automate the measurement against those goals.

Standardize the Policy

Use these test initiatives to drive meaningful changes in operational behavior by creating clear, consistent, and measurable targets.

Integrate with ARC API

Simplify and automate accessibility testing in a typical CI/CD pipeline against defined accessibility policies.

Celebrate the Wins

Know when you achieve success and let contributors and stakeholders know the positive impacts being made.

Know Precisely What You Need to Achieve and How You are Performing Against those Goals

Accessibility conformance can seem like a murky and moving target as the WCAG guidelines can be open to interpretations making it difficult to know how you are actually progressing and when you achieve a goal.

ARC Test Initiatives simplifies this by giving program managers and stakeholders the ability to establish clear policies across the organization and automate the data capture towards achieving those goals.

Step 1:

  • Review your initial domain analysis or other scans and identify common failures
  • Use the simple configuration options to select the failures you want to create policy around
  • Set your threshold for success, whether it’s an improvement over current status or a zero-tolerance policy
