EqualWeb aims to provide an all-in-one platform that takes care of creating and maintaining your website, but how does it manage this feat? In this review, we’ll take a close look at its features and what it can do to help make your site accessible. It offers many features, including easy compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a built-in search engine optimization (SEO) toolset, contact forms, online chat tools, shopping carts, and much more. Read on to find out more about what makes EqualWeb worth using in any situation!

How Does It Work?

EqualWeb is a cloud-based service that allows website owners to get up to speed with accessibility compliance. Instead of spending hours figuring out which tools you need, how they work, and which ones are most effective at helping you become compliant, you can use EqualWeb to give your website an automated pass/fail grade when it comes to complying with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA standards. That way, you know where your site stands before ever setting foot in Google’s Developer Console or checking out any outside software.
