Nonvisual Accessibility Web Certification

Fees

As straightforward as it may seem, the number of pages a Web site contains and even the amount of memory on a site's or application's system are metrics that can be misleading when trying to determine the size of the site for accessibility purposes and testing. Therefore, if you come through a WAC, the WAC will use its expertise to determine the size of your site or application.

If you come directly to the NFB, we will determine the size of your application or site after you have completed the initial assessment (which will help us make the determination). Estimated prices are listed below.
