What does it mean to manually test a website?

GrackleAUDIT provides you the ability to have your websites, mobile native apps, software and more, go through a manual auditing process.

Digital products are manually by our Digital Accessibility Specialists, who are trained in testing each WCAG success criteria. The evaluation is based on the Website Accessibility Conformance Evaluation Methodology (WCAG-EM). To ensure manual audits are completed at the highest standard, each specialist has their work independently cross-checked and participates in cross-checking the testing work of others against the same criteria.

GrackleAUDIT offers usability testing through our Usability Analyst Team. This team is comprised of people with disabilities. Each usability analyst has a different type of disability and is a trained professional in the use of their assistive technology, which they rely on every day. As part of the testing process, they are given a journey to complete and are asked to give anecdotal feedback about how the experience was for them, reporting where they found difficulties and where things worked well.

Millions of documents have already been Grackled!

A small sample of what our happy customers have to say about GrackleDocs

  • Association of Guide Dogs in Lyon

    Our organization provides guide dogs free of charge to visually impaired people to help them navigate independently.

    But despite persistent efforts, we haven’t been able to teach our dogs to read. So, to produce documents that are accessible and easy to read for our beneficiaries, we associate a grackle with the dog.

    This is a very user-friendly solution in our Google Workspace environment. The return on investment is excellent and the combination of Google Docs and Grackle works wonderfully.

  • Columbus State University

    Dear Grackle Team, we are so grateful for your reaching out to share the Grackle product suite. At Columbus State University, we frequently recommend GrackleDocs to faculty members preparing their course content for online courses.

    Its design makes addressing accessibility issues clear and straightforward. When an issue is found, the interface provides a link to its location and methods for addressing it. Then you simply do a recheck. It’s so easy to use! We are looking forward to trying it out with all Google products. Thanks again!

  • The Simple Web

    The Grackle Docs’ interface shows document accessibility errors and guides you through fixing them. The process is very easy allowing you to create an accessible PDF at the click of a button.
    After exporting over 250 accessible PDFs in a month with Grackle Docs, I am impressed and relieved to have such a fabulous add-on to Google Docs. The Grackle Docs’ staff respond to support requests promptly, thoroughly and politely.

  • Region 10 ESC

    As an educational non-profit with limited budgets, we looked for an affordable solution to implement Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 for our G Suite output and meet requirements for OCR compliance.

    We didn’t find anything else that would work as well, nor as inexpensively, as Grackle Suite to help us remediate our Google Docs, Sheets and Slides. My students who I teach accessibility to (Region 10 staff) like it and think it’s easy to learn and use. I highly recommend Grackle.
