Get scanning with the ReachDeck Auditor
We know that in your fast-paced teams it can be difficult to manage quality assurance.
With the ReachDeck Auditor, scan your website for WCAG errors anytime you make an update. Or, build it into your team’s routine. It’ll uncover accessibility errors including broken links, and readability problems. Helping you to maintain accessibility of all your digital content.
Get started using these handy resources.
Edit out hard to read content with the ReachDeck Editor
Across your organisation your teams produce a lot of content. And we know that every piece of information they create is valuable. But not everyone has the same level of literacy.
Whether your employees are writing to one another, or for an external audience, readability matters. Encouraging every employee to use the ReachDeck Editor will help to make sure your content can be understood by all. And that it’s inclusive.
Use these resources to get everyone in your organisation writing in a way that’s simple, clear and concise.
Support your web visitors with the ReachDeck Toolbar
Every visitor to your website is unique. They each have different needs. Giving them a choice in how they access your online information supports inclusion.
Add the ReachDeck Toolbar to your website and provide your visitors with reading, speech and translation support.
Follow our simple steps to get started.
One of the most important parts of getting started with ReachDeck is letting your employees know it’s available. It will benefit everyone across your organisation. So let’s tell them how.
