The Accessibility Quiz

Take this 10 question quiz and find out how good a job your organization is doing at providing an accessible experience to all your web visitors.

Question 1

Do you have a set of well-defined accessibility standards that you use for any web site or mobile apps?

Yes. It's a standard part of our process.

Sort of. We're aware of best practices and do our best.

No. We didn't explicitly have accessibility in mind when we designed things.

Question 2

Have you ever tried browsing your web site/app with a screen reader?



What is a screen reader?

Question 3

Do all of the meaningful images on your site/app have useful ALT text defined for them?

Yes, all of them.

Probably, but I'm not sure.

No, I don't think so.

Question 4

Can you resize the text on your site/app without it breaking the layout?

Yes, definitely.

Probably, though I'm sure how it will affect the layout.

No, I don't think so.

Question 5

Can you access and operate all functionality on your site/app using just a keyboard?

Yes, all of it.

Most of it... I think.

Probably not.

Question 6

The focus order is consistent and intuitive on all pages.

Yes, definitely.

I'm not sure what our focus order is.

No, I'm pretty sure it's not.

Question 7

Ok, assume you're blind and can't use your hands. Do you think you could access, understand, and use all the critical content and functionality on your site/app?

Yes, I'm sure I could.

Probably most of it, but I'm not sure.

No, likely not.

Question 8

Have you ever tested your site/app with someone who has a disability?

Yes, we do that as a regular part of our testing program.

We've done it a time or two, but not regularly.

No, we've never done that.

Question 9

Do you know who on your team is responsible for ensuring an accessible site/app?

Yes, that is someone's explicit responsibility.

It's nobody's explicit responsibility. The responsibility is sort of shared amongst the team.

No, it's nobody's clear responsibility.

Question 10

Do you have a clear understanding of the pertinent laws in your country, state, or municipality?

Yes, we understand them clearly.

A general understanding, but not a clear one.

No, we're not sure of the relevant laws.

If you scored between 0 and 12:
You're probably at high risk of having an accessibility-related challenge to your site or app.

If you scored from 13 and 17:
You're probably still at moderate risk of having an accessibility-related challenge to your site or app.

If you scored from 18 to 20:
Nice job! You're probably at low risk for an accessibility-related challenge to your site or app. Be sure to continue to focus on providing an accessible experience for all.

Special Offer:
Balanced Experience can help you dig in and understand more precisely how your web site or app stacks up against the established accessibility standards defined by the Web Accessibility Initiative, a part of the Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C). These are the standards that are typically used to establish the degree to which any site or app is considered accessible.

Sign up for an accessibility audit before the end of the calendar year and save 10% on the standard cost. You can do the audit any time in 2015, but if you sign up for it by the end of 2014, you save $1,500.
