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

  • Collaborative.org

    Grackle is an amazing suite that solved a big technical gap with our own organization and our member school districts who all use Google Workspace for document management.

    As we began offering website accessibility services, we realized there wasn’t a good solution to suggest to our customers on how to manage accessibility within Google documents.

    Having to download, convert, and scan through other tools was too cumbersome–until we found Grackle. Despite the pandemic shutdowns, we continue to promote Grackle during our large district tech and superintendent meetings as well as meetings with other collaboratives like ours.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Emmanuel’s Wish Foundation

    What I love about Grackle Suite is that it makes remediation simpler at every step of our workflow. It’s easier to correct documents, easier to audit groups of files and easier to create tagged PDFs
