About 20% of the global population suffers from some form of disability and a large part of the World Wide Web (~97%) is not accessible to them. Infosys Accessibility Testing Tool (iATT) is a web application that addresses this issue and enables enterprises to plan their web accessibility strategy while fulfilling legal, economic, as well as corporate social responsibility. The tool, recommended by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), helps enterprises charter into a territory that has remained predominantly untouched over the years, thereby increasing the company’s reach and its user base, along with attaining better compliance to governmental regulations.

How is Infosys delivering value through Accessibility Testing?


The iATT strives for an accessible website and an inclusive enterprise. By enabling the users with different needs to perform activities efficiently, it increases a website’s customer reach and brand loyalty. The tool checks the accessibility quotient of PDF documents and leverages built-in intelligence based on accessibility parameters for HTML elements as well as contextual semantic content in the webpages to analyze the accessibility rules and crawling of webpages. iATT also checks for web accessibility compliance to W3C standards such as WCAG 1.0, WCAG 2.0, WCAG 2.1 as well as country-specific accessibility requirements like Section 508 of US, DDA of Australia, DDA of UK, ADA of the US, AODA of Canada, etc. Based on this assessment, it provides a comprehensive report along with recommendations.
