Ensuring Compliance

Bender’s team of accessibility experts have experience applying Section 508 and WCAG 2.2 AA to ensure your digital products are compliant.

Bender’s digital accessibility experts have experience ensuring the digital environment is accessible to all users of technology, including those who interact with digital space using assistive technologies such as screen readers, text-to-speech, and dictation tools, as well as those who interact with technology solely through the use of the keyboard (non-mouse users).

We test for compliance with Section 508/WCAG 2.2 across a range of disability personas, including those who are blind, low-vision, deaf, hard of hearing, color-blind, people with disabilities that affect processing of written materials, and people with disabilities that affect motor skills.



We use a unique process that pairs Visual and Non-Visual testers to review all elements of the product being tested.


Once testing has been conducted, we provide a report identifying pass/fail for each element, as well as information about why an element fails and how to ensure that element meets compliance. 

Remediation Support

 Our HighTest team is available for consultation during the remediation process and will retest failed elements to ensure compliance has been met after updates are made.


Our HighTest Digital Accessibility team has experience testing a variety of digital products that customers and employees interact with on a daily basis. Whatever your testing needs, our team has the expertise to meet your needs.

What We Test

We have the proven ability to test for accessibility of online marketplaces, career portals, web applications, forms, customer portals, marketing documents, eLearning, reports, kiosks, company websites, and more. The results of taking this step is that your products both meet compliance and provide a positive user experience for people with a wide variety of disabilities.

Digital Accessibility Conformance Reports

 Bender’s HighTest team has experience supporting organizations in developing digital accessibility conformance reports (formerly known as VPATs), giving your organization an opportunity to demonstrate action in the area of digital accessibility compliance for mission-critical contracts.
