This Week's Featured Advertisement: Get Your Accessibility Health Check !!!

Illustration of a doctor standing over a laptop with vials in each hand, assessing the accessibility of the system in front of him. To the left of the doctor is a large beaker being held upright by a chemistry stand. On the front of the beaker is the Paciello Group symbol. To the left of this illustration, from top to bottom, are the Paciello Group Logo, the Accessibility Health Check Logo, and finally text summarizing the functionality of Health Check.

Whether you're new to web accessibility or have been struggling to meet ADA requirements for a while, an accessibility health check provides valuable insight into your current state and provides actions for improvement.
