I thought BentoBox was already ADA compliant or certified accessible. Why do I need ADA Pro?
Our platform and templates have been audited and are certified accessible, however, we could not provide certification of each individual restaurant website as the content is ever-changing. But now with ADA Pro, you'll have a tool that monitors your website daily for accessibility errors, fixes them weekly and can provide ADA certification for your website.
What happens to my website for accessibility if I don't purchase ADA Pro?
Accessibility without ADA Pro:
• Certified accessible platform and templates
• Guide on how to keep your content accessible on the BentoBox platform
Accessibility with ADA Pro:
• Certified accessible platform and templates
• Certificate of accessibility for your individual website
• Real time daily monitoring for accessibility with weekly manual fixes by engineers
• Accessibility reports available for every ADA Pro customer upon request
• Remediation and rebuttal reports available for every ADA Pro customer in the event of a lawsuit
What happens if I cancel ADA Pro?
You may cancel anytime.
How much work is required on my end to set this up?
No work required on your end at all.
Can you guarantee if I use ADA Pro that I won't get sued?
We can never guarantee protection from lawsuits, however, having this accessibility add-on on your website significantly reduces the chances of receiving a lawsuit
Why do I have to pay for this?
Making a website accessible is a lot of work. To ensure a website is accessible it needs to be tested with various assistive technologies and remediated by a team of developers. ADA Pro does this and a lot more which is why there is a cost associated.
Am I guaranteed to be 100% compliant to ADA standards with ADA Pro?
There is no such thing as a 100% compliant website because there are no federal laws around what it means to have a compliant website That said, ADA Pro ensures your website is as accessible as possible. It's one of the best tools in the market for this kind of work.
How long does it take to get certified through ADA Pro?
What happens if I receive a demand letter or lawsuit with ADA Pro on my site?
We will supply you with a Sustainable Testing and Remediation (STAR) Plan, which speaks to all the work that has been done to make your website accessible. If this happens you can ask your customer success manager for this info and we will get this for you.
We will also have our accessibility partners at AudioEye review the allegations and provide additional correspondence as needed as well.
What happens if I delete pages or add new content - will my website still be accessible?
Absolutely! This accessibility add-on is constantly monitoring 24/7 and making changes
Is the toolbar present on mobile?
All the remediation work that has been done on your website does carry over to mobile. Help Desk and the Certification Statement tools on the toolbar will be the only tools that show up on mobile.
The rest of the tools do not appear on your mobile website because these devices are already equipped with accessibility tools like VoiceOver (Apple) and TalkBack (Android).
Do I get weekly or monthly reports?
BentoBox can provide reports as needed or requested by you. There is no automatic reporting feature yet.
How long does it take for a customer to move from each step in the remediation process?
Each website is different so it depends but typically the icon and Step 1 (Activation) will be in seven days or less. Step 2 and 3 (Testing & Discovery and Remediation & Validation) happen simultaneously. Step 4 (AudioEye Trusted) is a continuous monitoring process. The total process is approximately 80-120 days in most cases.
What browsers is the accessibility ADA Pro compatible with?
ADA Pro works with all modern, standard-compliant Web browsers, including the latest two versions of Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Microsoft Edge, and Internet Explorer 11. As of January 12, 2016, Microsoft stopped providing security updates, compatibility fixes, and technical support to Internet Explorer 10 and below. As a result, these non-secure, legacy browsers are not supported ADA Pro powered by AudioEye. Microsoft is only providing these updates to IE 11+ going forward.
What does always on monitoring mean? How often does ADA Pro monitor a website and what actions are taken?
ADA Pro is constantly monitoring 24/7. Results are compiled on a weekly basis and analyzed. Any additional (new) accessibility concerns (errors or risks) are addressed based on level of criticality.
Can I change the color of the blue widget?
Unfortunately no. This icon must remain as is.
Can we hide the blue floating man completely? Or can we put the icon in our accessibility statement?
Unfortunately, this is not available yet. Having the icon on your website is powerful because it showcases that you've thought about website accessibility and are actively working on the issue.
Can ADA Pro make PDFs accessible?
ADA Pro is currently unable to make PDFs accessible however, both BentoBox and AudioEye are working on a solution for this.
Can ADA Pro add captions to my videos for me?
No; ADA Pro cannot make fixes on third party technologies like Youtube or Vimeo.
