Reviews, evaluations and technical testing
TesselLearn evaluates web pages, software, hardware, documents and media. We use technical, code-based, manual and assistive technology testing and compare with multiple standards. Our team reviews websites and software using initial automatic reviews, deep code and manual reviews and screen reader testing. You receive a report of needed fixes - reported in a code agnostic, WCAG 2.1 structure - and can schedule follow-up discussions.
TesselLearn provides expert guidance for strategizing. The best time to focus on digital accessibility is as you build. We will test your software periodically as your collaborators in the build or rapid deployment processes.
Reviews based on standards
TesselLearn staff and consultants understand 508 and 508 Refresh standards along with:
- Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA and Web Accessibility Initiative-Accessible Rich Internet Applications (WAI-ARIA) 1.0 for web content;

- WCAG Non-Web Information and Communications Technologies (WCAG2ICT) for non-web software and communications technologies
- DAISY or ePub3 for digital publications and documents
- ADA Accessibility Guidelines and other standards for the accessible design of kiosks, ATMs, personal computers, and other campus or classroom technology
- MathML 3.0 specifications for digital mathematical and scientific notation TL consultants can verify the use of MathML in products and processes but will rely upon client mathematicians to verify the correctness of the MathML formulas themselves
- Braille Authority of North America (BANA) Guidelines and Standards for Tactile Graphics (2010) and Guidelines for the Production of Braille Materials through the Use of Braille Production Software (2007) for hardcopy Braille. Tessellearn evaluations will be based on knowledge of Grade 1 Braille but not Grade 2, 3 or Nemeth Braille
We use JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver and other screen readers; Dragon Naturally Speaking and additional appropriate assistive technology along with automatic and manual methods during reviews.
