There are many great agencies offering accessibility testing services. For the sake of complete transparency, I list them in the Useful Links section of this website.
However, with XSIBL you get the undivided attention of Tristán White, the founder and director, with 22 years of experience in the accessibility business. There are no agency fees and just a single point of contact at all time.
The initial consultation is free. During that time I can assess how may days it would take to audit your website. We charge £300 per day for most companies, and a special rate of £200 for registered charities. Because we are a brand new company there is no VAT added onto this price. I can work through roughly five pages/templates per day, but with simpler websites I can work much faster.
You then take the audit back with you and get your team to make the changes. There are no further charges. You can call me if anything is unclear, but you will find that I write in a very easy-to-understand style that your team will understand.
At a mutually convenient time, I will retest the site to ensure that all the fixes have been carried out. This is free of charge. If however there are at this stage new pages to be tested that were not on the original website, they will be costed as above.
If I am satisfied that your site passes AA, then you can feel confident to carry W3C's conformance badge on your site:
Occasionally, you may need me to test your website on your premises, because it is for internal use only (eg an Intranet) or has not yet been launched so can only be tested from your IP address. I charge £50 per day if I need to come to your office, plus travel expenses and, if needed, hotel expenses. However, if you are based in or around central London, there will be no additional travel or hotel expenses. Please note that I have liability insurance of one million pounds should I need to work from your premises.
