EqualWeb is known for its free Google Chrome Accessibility Checker feature and a $1,000,000 warranty with its full remediation plan. It offers a mix of automated and manual solutions for full WCAG compliance. However, their widget doesn’t guarantee 100% compliance (source).
Experience and Impact
With over two decades of experience working with people with disabilities, EqualWeb provides a robust digital accessibility solution. It’s installed on over a hundred million web pages, ensuring compliance with various accessibility standards like WCAG 2.1, ADA, Section 508, EN301549, and IS5568 (source).
User Experience Focus
EqualWeb prioritizes delivering an excellent user experience for individuals with various disabilities. They ensure that websites meet WCAG “Success Criterion” and are accessible to people with disabilities ranging from low vision to cognitive limitations (source).
EqualWeb’s Accessibility Menu includes features like Blink Block, Voice Commands, Readable Fonts, Magnifiers, and Image Description using Google’s Optical Character Recognition for images without ALT tags (source).
The Accessibility Checker is a browser plugin that scans websites for compliance errors and provides actionable steps for remediation. This tool is available for free on the Chrome web store (source).
Because I only found positive feedback and no negative reviews or critical perspectives on EqualWeb, I’m giving them 5 stars. That said, I think there are easier and more affordable solutions for local businesses and smaller brands as I find EqualWeb to have been designed primarily for corporate and enterprise clients.
