AAArdvark vs Accessibility Widgets

Compare AAArdvark with the popular accessiBe overlay widget.

How Does AAArdvark Compare to AI Accessibility Widgets?

A number of products have appeared on the market that claim to provide a quick fix for accessibility issues by simply installing a javascript snippet. Some services, like accessiBeOpens in new window, go even further and claim to make websites WCAG compliant on-the-fly using “AI”. 

While this is very compelling marketing, anyone who has done accessibility remediation work knows this is a dubious claim. Compliance with most WCAG standards requires serious human thought, consideration, and conversation to solve. You can see the depth of discussion in places like the WebAIM mailing listOpens in new window as an indication of the knowledge required to implement WCAG standards.

If you are determined to use one of these automated solutions, we highly recommend consulting your legal council to evaluate whether the service you have chosen provides any protection from demand letters and lawsuits in the U.S.

So, what is the accessibility alternative to AI widgets?
