Doing a basic accessibility check if you cannot do a detailed one

Checking your website's accessibility if you cannot pay for an audit and do not have an expert in your organisation.

Details

The first step towards meeting the new accessibility requirements involves evaluating how accessible your website is.

You should only use this document to help you do your evaluation if you do not have an accessibility expert in your organisation and cannot pay for a third party auditor to do the check for you. Before you start, check whether you should be doing a basic evaluation, or whether you should do a detailed evaluation instead.

Once you’ve done your evaluation, you’ll know what needs fixing. You’ll then need to work out what it’s reasonable for you to fix now and what can wait until a later date.
