For your convenience, we will provide three examples, so you can understand where your business can expect, price-wise:
Ordered and received a standard audit for 10 pages ($379)
Website with 8 pages, 1 video and 2 pdf files; 11 assets and an estimate of 28 hrs of work
Quoted price – $47/hour multiplied by 28 hours minus the cost of the audit (credited) = $937 for remediation inside a week. Estimated savings of $35,000 for the initial 178 errors on all pages
Ordered a comprehensive audit for its 17 pages website ($946)
Website with 17 pages, 10 videos (under 5 min each), 6 mp3 files (under 5 min each), 10 pdf files (under 6 pages each) and one 35 min video; about 50 assets and an estimate of 83 hours of work
Quoted price – $47/hour multiplied by 83 minus the cost of the audit (credited) = $2,955 for remediation inside 15 days. Estimated savings $65,000 for the initial 477 errors on all pages
Ordered a comprehensive audit for website with 82 pages ($3,954)
About 150 assets (82 pages, 18 pdf files – one 25 pages, rest under 10 pages, 18 videos, 2 click funnels)- at this level he got a quote for 210 hours of work
Quoted price – $47/hour X 210 hours – audit = $5,916 inside 45 days (in 48 hours solved main issues on the homepage, and rest of the issues gradually)
Due to the lack of transcripts available, a bad accent of the speaker, and virtually no possibility to automatically generate closed captions and transcripts, there was a need for manual processing of the videos (9 hours) – the client agrees to pay an amount of $1,250 extra for the processing. Estimated savings of up to $140,000 for the initial 4,832 errors on all pages (76 of them on the website homepage)
90% of our customers incur a total cost under $4,900 for their website ADA compliance process. A median cost would be around $3,900 (excluding the audit) with variations from $2,000 to $9,000.
If you compare this amount with an average settlement + cost of urgent remediation + fine (near $100,000) you can easily see savings of $90k-$95k. The peace of mind that you are compliant has an important added bonus: by becoming accessible you will raise your chances to access the disability person market (1 in 5 inside the US has a visual, hearing or physical disability). By making easier for them to access your products, guess what – you will have more customers!
