Benchmark and Accessibility
in partnership with National Compliance Group
NCG and Its Partner Websites
National Compliance Group ("NCG") strives to ensure that its services are accessible to people with disabilities. NCG has invested a significant amount of resources to help ensure that its website and its partner websites are made easier to use and more accessible for people with disabilities, with the strong belief that every person has the right to live with dignity, equality, comfort and independence.
NCG continues its efforts to constantly improve the accessibility of its site and its partner sites and services in the belief that it is our collective moral and legal obligation to allow seamless, accessible and unhindered use also for those of us with disabilities.
In an ongoing effort to continually improve and remediate accessibility issues, we also regularly scan websites to identify and fix every possible accessibility barrier on our sites. Despite our efforts to make all pages and content fully accessible, some content may not have yet been fully adapted to the strictest accessibility standards. This may be a result of not having found or identified the most appropriate technological solution.
If you are experiencing difficulty with any content on any of our websites, widgets, any of our services or require assistance with any part of our sites or software, please contact us below and we will be happy to assist.
How Does ADA Web Accessibility Work?
Answers. Guidance. Support.
The Initial Audit
Are you in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)?
We will run an initial audit on your site to see if you are in violation of the ADA or if your site is already compliant. Our audits are based on manual and automated testing using specialized testing tools and software. The audits are performed by experienced accessibility experts.
A plan and a timeline.
We will work with your advertising agency, web developers, or others based on your needs to formulate the remediation process that includes code repairs that cause the errors that put you in violation of the ADA and cause problems for web accessibility. During this phase, we can develop a timeline that gets your website compliant in the shortest amount of time. We are a constant partner during the remediation phase, and ongoing remediation assessments will occur until completion of the project.
Validation. Documentation. Compliance.
A validation assessment is performed and approved by accessibility experts with National Compliance Group. We provide Conformance Documentation to verify that your website has been remediated and now complies with the ADA and all relevant accessibility requirements.
The Seal of Approval
Put the proof right on your website.
Once the site has been remediated, we offer you all of the required disclosure language that is needed on your website. We also provide a website Seal that you can display to show that your site is VERIFIED by qualified website accessibility experts. The seal is updated yearly as well as the audit and Conformance Documentation.
