"Radio buttons." inaccessible by definition, is an area where we excel. Since checkboxes are accessible, we simulate the functionality of radio buttons by creating mutually exclusive checkboxes. This involves removing radio buttons, adding checkboxes and adding scripts for every checkbox so that once clicked, it would uncheck all other checkboxes in the same group.
Another area where we differentiate ourselves is in our handling of lists. When screen readers encounter a list tagged as a “list,” it states that it is about to read a list of elements.
Frequently, testers and authors do not mark lists as such, and therefore they will not be identified by screen readers as a list, but rather as a paragraph. While, strictly speaking, this may not be part of Section 508, it nevertheless provides for enhanced accessibility to people with disabilities.
Pricing obviously varies depending on the amount of work and complexity of the documents but typically ranges from $8-12 per page (but more for complex documents).
