ARC

Whether you are a novice to accessibility or a seasoned pro, sometimes your best start to accessibility is to let technology do some heavy lifting. Designers, developers and testers dealing with an accessibility project or program are looking for ways to inform their team quickly about what’s inaccessible with their digital content and get rapid insight into how to fix it. There’s a better way to find your way towards accessibility using TPG’s Accessibility Resource Center (ARC).

Take your first step on the path to being more accessible. Welcome to ARC.

ARC includes next generation automated testing. Our solution looks for machine-detectable accessibility defects within digital content. Designed for rapid scanning of a web domain, ARC will crawl through your website looking for accessibility violations against common standards, including WCAG 2.0 A/AA or Section 508. ARC is powerful. It takes scanning data and turns it into actionable insight. Need to know what pages have the highest density of certain types of accessibility defects? Need to track progress over time or compare the performance of different sites? Use ARC’s dashboards and data visualization features to guide you towards what you need to be concerned most about, and what you should fix first.

  • The right data in the right hands. Never overloaded. Use dashboards that suit your users: Customer (multi-domain), Domain, Page, Issue
