State websites should be accessible to everyone, contain quality content, and be free from issues such as broken links and spelling errors. NDIT offers a website quality scanning service to assist agencies with finding and monitoring potential issues on their websites.
Quality assurance of your website ensures the best experience for users by eliminating broken links, misspellings, and inaccurate content. It also enables all visitors to use your website and consume its content regardless of device and/or disability.
Site quality scanning ensures that as content is changed or added, it remains clean, free of errors, and easy for site visitors to read. Frequent broken links, misspellings, and content that is hard to understand may cause people to leave a site instead of exploring it.
“Accessibility Compliance” has been frequently used to describe verifying that websites are designed properly for people with disabilities and are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. There could possibly be legal implications for non-compliance, but this should not be the only driving force influencing agencies to ensure those with disabilities are able to access their website content easily. Compliance guidelines don’t just benefit those with disabilities; they ensure clean content that makes the user experience better for all website visitors.
Scans are run weekly and emailed to the agency. The scanning tool features an easy-to-use dashboard that identifies specific issues that should be fixed.
