What is Siteimprove?

Literally from the sound of the name, Siteimprove is another one-stop platform for achieving the organization’s digital potential. As a SaaS solution, Siteimprove empowers organizations with insights to deliver a good website experience and drive growth. The platform caters to Accessibility, Quality Assurance, Performance, SEO, Data Privacy, Analytics, and more.

For its web accessibility solution, they provide web accessibility tools that test against the internationally recognized Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) to identify accessibility barriers. The automated accessibility testing tool breaks down issues into an easy-to-understand task with in-code highlights for efficient removal and inclusive digital presence for all.

All in one platform but let’s analyze Siteimprove’s web accessibility approach.

Siteimprove Service(s) and Features

Siteimprove provides web accessibility tools to enable organizations to improve the user’s digital presence and stay compliant with accessibility laws. The tool test against WCAG 2.1 AA, as well as points out common accessibility issues with in-code highlights and recommendations on how to address those issues referencing WCAG techniques and best practices.

The Siteimprove platform automatically tests your web assets (can audit thousands of pages at a time), so you can filter accessibility issues and prioritize the parts of your website that need swift attention. With Page Reports, you can have accessibility issues highlighted within the source code or the web page to ease the location of errors. It also allows you to cross-check content for other quality assurance issues in order to make targeted improvements immediately for an improved user experience. It checks for issues such as spelling errors, improper HTML header elements, broken links, and SEO issues. 

The platform also allows you to test PDFs, identifying accessibility issues such as alt text, tables, forms, and other non-textual objects to bring your documents closer to compliance with the ADA (Title III), Section 508, EN 301 549, and other web accessibility laws. Siteimprove presents tools, customizable dashboards, and reports to track your efforts and report progress, and measure success towards compliance. 

True, remediating errors based on automated tests can enable you to make impactful fixes and bring your website closer to accessibility and WCAG compliance but like any other, the automated testing tool alone cannot discover all accessibility errors on the web pages. The limitation of the platform is why Siteimprove’s accessibility experts manual review your web assets to discover usability issues that couldn’t be automatically discovered. They provide technical support, learning courses, and accessibility services to comprehensively remove errors and make your website accessible to the disabled and compliant with regulations.

Siteimprove Pricing

The Siteimprove all-in-one platform is just a bit charged over the usual automated accessibility testing tools. The bespoke services (comprehensive automated and manual audit, remediation, training, or consultation) are tailored to your organization’s accessibility requirements.

Siteimprove Platform and Support

Siteimprove’s accessibility platform can be used either during the development cycle or after for automated assessment against WCAG, the scan result of which comes with actionable to-dos you can use to remove common issues. The platform is easy to understand by both technical and non-technical individuals with good explanations and recommendations on how to resolve issues with reference to the industry’s best practices. You can also access resources via the built-in Help Center.

On-demand manual expert review is equally as easy. The experts check the website and recommend how to fix barriers to compliance.

  • Platform is a bit expensive
  • Few resources to boost support

The Final Verdict On Siteimprove

Siteimprove growth and popularity within the web accessibility space cannot be questioned. A platform that gets an overview of your web presence; test for accessibility and drives digital growth. 

The Siteimprove platform pinpoints accessibility and quality assurance issues while providing easy-to-understand information on removing them. Together with the manual audit service, Siteimprove provides report and support that guides your IT team (developers, designers, and content authors), through remediation and ensure compliance with accessibility standards and legal requirements. Other than its use to build accessibility into your process, the platform can be very helpful for ongoing compliance monitoring of compliance issues to minimize risk.

Like any other automated accessibility evaluation tool, Siteimprove’s website accessibility testing tool cannot fully test for all of the WCAG 2.1 success criteria. Hence, subscribing to the platform alone and remediating based on it the result is enough to make your website fully accessible. The easiest comparison to Siteimprove is Monsido. They both offer a platform to help organizations achieve their digital potential except that Siteimprove does not provide a toolkit that goes beyond website management such as the accessibility toolbar overlay. 

With Siteimprove, like the traditional manual accessibility solutions, you can test, audit, and remediate your website for compliance.
