Why Disabled-Led Manual Audits Surpass Automated Tools?

Limitations

Automated monitoring tools, despite their efficiency, are limited to detecting only about 60% of actual accessibility issues. They can identify technical compliance but often miss the user logic aspect.

Interpretaion

According to Harvard University, Seventy percent of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) success criteria require human review in order to properly interpret criteria and navigate gray areas outside of technology’s purview.

Widgets

Some retailers use accessibility widgets to outsource making websites accessible, but that’s no guarantee that it works, or that they are safe from lawsuits. 575 of web accessibility lawsuits in 2022 named businesses using widgets, a 36% increase over 2021.

Dynamic Content

Most automated tools don’t handle dynamic content or one-page applications.

Risks

Some automated tools offer “automatic compliance” that creates risks and liabilities, slows down websites and mislead the customer.

Validation

Manual audits validate user journeys, interactivity, and usability using assistive technology.

When Automated Audits Aren't Enough: Use Cases

Context Clarity

An automated audit tool might mark multiple “Size” labels as compliant, but a person with disabilities might only hear repetitive and uninformative “button size” prompts.

Navigation Solutions

Navigation loops can trap keyboard-reliant users in sections like the Cart, hindering their progress. The most effective approach combines automated monitoring for continual oversight with an initial manual audit.

Overlay Issues

Overlay accessibility tools installation can overwrite the labels with some explanation text. This results in screen readers not being usable in order tracking functionality.

Label Overwrites

Overlay accessibility tools installation can overwrite the missing labels with repetitive or “Text Filed” labels. This results in screen readers not being usable in order tracking functionality.

Navigation Barriers

Automated tools will not let you bypass all the navigation embeded menus, so when possibly making a wrong click, the users must go through 50+ steps to reach the webpage destination (PLP or PDP).

How long does the audit usually take?

  • Number of screen readers used
  • Number of custom scenarios
  • Number of iterations (initial audit, validation audits)

How frequently do you perform an audit?

All the time. AIOPSGROUP’s Accessibility Practice suggests constant monitoring after the initial audit and report, plus a manual audit every six months, adjusting for website updates and legal changes.
