Build compliant and accessible applications through intelligent testing
According to the World Health Organization, about 285 million people worldwide are visually impaired, and of those, around 39 million are fully blind. Feature-rich websites are designed to enhance visual appeal, and the lack of accessibility standards (video labeling, alt text, captions, etc.) acts as a barrier for people with disabilities.
The challenge lies in ensuring that digital channels adhere to various regulatory and federal requirements – WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines), Section 508, and ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act). Other common issues include low-contrast images, smaller font sizes, and lack of voice descriptions for images and text.
Virtusa’s accessibility testing solution ensures that your web/mobile applications are tested for accessibility compliance. We provide recommendations to optimize your channels for the differently abled users. With a 15%-30% operational efficiency boost and significant cost optimization, Virtusa’s solution promises agility and improved compliance.
Websites and mobile apps accessibility tested by Virtusa are used by more than a billion users globally every day. Our accessibility testing solution is an extension of Virtusa’s endeavour to create sustainable solutions for its own employees and customers that include users with disabilities.
Our approach for achieving compliance with WCAG, Section 508 standards, and ADA, and improving accessibility, is backed by a combination of engineering tools and accelerators, delivered by Virtusa’s DTS (Digital Transformation Studio). This allows teams to achieve speed at scale across SDLC. Virtusa's Accello DTA tool helps reduce risk through multi-channel automation and enables end-to-end digital test automation.
