How does Watermark assess its accessibility?
Watermark assesses the accessibility of products using the following approaches:
- A formal quality assurance process is in place during which testing takes place both using automated tools and manual testing with assistive technologies during the product development lifecycle. Our staff receives training on a regular basis.
- All products are audited a minimum on an annual basis by a trained and experienced accessibility evaluator who is CPWA certified by IAAP.
- When needed, Watermark enlists third parties, such as Deque Systems, Inc. for accessibility testing and consulting.
- When needed, Watermark tests with users who have disabilities in partnership with our clients.
