Accessible web development services
I help individuals, development teams, and companies foster web accessibility in the work they do for the web.
- help you improve your designs before you sink time into inaccessible products
- help you turn your designs into prototypes
- help you make your existing product more accessible and performant

Work I’m currently accepting:
- Feedback-oriented projects, such as accessibility audits and design reviews.
- Engineering-oriented projects, in which I help you develop a prototype or contribute to an existing project.
For now, I am consulting part-time only.
If you need a full-time consultant, or need someone who is available during typical U.S. business hours, I cannot accept you as a client. I might be able to find you another consultant, however.
On web accessibility audits
My accessibility audits are organized around key user flows. First, you tell me which user flows you’d like me to assess (or I can help you identify those flows); then we’ll discuss your user and device requirements. If you’re not targeting specific assistive technologies, I’ll scope my audit to VoiceOver with Safari and NVDA with its most common browser combinations. At this time, I do not audit for compatibility with JAWS.
I will conduct my audit according to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Conformance Evaluation Methodology (WCAG-EM), with some modifications: I can also provide non-normative feedback in my process, such as suggestions about how to improve designs and implementations that are technically conformant, but might be inaccessible all the same.
I’ll deliver your audit report as a WCAG-EM document. I can also deliver the information in the report in other formats, such as a website with interactive examples. I can prepare a high-level summary of the report as a written document or slide presentation. We can discuss this when you contact me.
If I discover in my audit some things that you would like help fixing, you can hire me as a web developer! This work would be separate and distinct from the audit process, and I would prefer that we discuss engineering work after the audit process, instead of trying to anticipate my engineering involvement ahead of time.
