By September 2020 we need to comply entirely with the 2018 accessibility regulations.

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/accessibili ... s-and-apps

The Verj.io forms product appears to fail some of these requirements.

Not meeting the standards set out in this regulation, leaves us open to fines and other penalties from the Equality and Human Rights Commission.

Are you working on addressing the requirements to meet these standards and if so, when would a release be likely?

We are reviewing the latest WCAG documentation with a view to ensuring that Verj.io apps can conform to all items at levels A and AA. We will also update the accessibility documentation in line with this. Any new accessibility support features resulting from this will be introduced in a future Verj.io release. Our aim is to make this available at or before March 2020.

We welcome further input on this subject so please feel free to ask more questions or raise any specific technical concerns.

Hi Jon,
We use Sitemorse to identify Accessibility and coding issues, the subscription includes a Chrome Plugin that enables you to test individual pages, hence how we test Verj.io forms.
SiteImprove also has a fair web page checker.
Wave is another tool we use for page testing.
validity.org.uk works well under Chrome Developer tools along with AXE from www.deque.com

Thanks
Neil

We are just starting to look at this subject at Ebase. Any comments or feedback from customers/users on any aspect of web accessibility would be most welcome, so if you have any specific accessibility wishes or gripes, please feel free to add them to this thread.

Our aim is to provide solutions for level A or AA guidelines from WCAG 2.1. A solution might entail HTML/CSS/Javascript generated automatically by Verj.io or it might entail the provision of tools, controls, attributes etc that allow developers to implement solutions.
