OzART Version 2.0 released

In late July AccessibilityOz released OzART, Version 2.0, with some really nifty features, including:

  • Automatically finding movement on pages
  • Automatically finding keyboard traps on pages
  • Testing sites behind a username and password
  • Highlighting of errors on a screenshot of the page
  • Mobile iPhone 6 testing

We’d love to give you a demo. Contact us via email or call one of our office numbers to arrange a time. We’re proud to welcome a number of different organisations to the OzART family, including McDonalds, George Mason University, Temple University and the National Federation of the Blind.

Accessibility audit special

In Australia, the quarter after the end of the financial year is quite slow for business – after the rush of June 30, sometimes that’s more than welcome. This year, we want to keep the momentum going, so we are offering a discounted rate for an accessibility audit – just $4,000 exc GST. Contact us about an accessibility audit of your site.

OzWiki – we’re looking for examples

Last year we added a bunch of mobile site and mobile app errors to OzWiki. This year we are looking to add correct examples of accessibility issues. And we need help! Send us your correct examples and if they get added to OzWiki you will get one month’s free access! For more information, see the OzWiki section on our web site.
