Identify more accessibility issues

Did you know that Siteimprove’s tool does not actually test for WCAG 2.1? WCAG 2.1 specifically covers accessibility on mobile devices.

A basic check is to test for content which scrolls in two dimensions (WCAG 1.4.10 Reflow), something Siteimprove’s tool cannot test for. This puts you at risk of non-compliance with the WCAG 2.1 standards, and will negatively affect your users.

Silktide’s platform does what no other automated testing platform can – we read your website as a real user would, in real browsers. We test all screen sizes to the required standard, including mobile.

Don’t get caught out, use Silktide for all your accessibility testing requirements.

WCAG is really confusing. Siteimprove was supposed to educate people on how to do it correctly, but it fell short on content. Silktide explains accessibility in a way that is so easy to understand.

Check your mobile site

Siteimprove’s tool claims to test for mobile, but their entire test is based on Google’s free page speed analysis. The only information provided is a single score out of 100.

In contrast, Silktide’s platform tests all your web pages on a mobile device, and we use this information to measure your mobile speed, layout, and accessibility.

Test more often

We’ll test your site automatically and give you updated results every five days. We also test whenever content is changed, so you’ll immediately be notified of any issues.

You can also run manual tests on individual pages or your whole site, whenever you like, at no extra cost.


Get more in-depth explanations

Silktide offers a clear solution for every technical issue discovered on your site. Our aim is not just to tell you about issues, but to show you where they occur and explain why and how to fix them.

We do this with explanations, code examples, and video guides for each issue, all located within easy reach.

We really weren’t getting what we wanted out of Siteimprove, especially for the price point we were at. I don’t regret switching, at all.

Perfect your quality assurance

Keeping track of content across thousands of pages is tough. Spelling and grammar errors can slip through the net, no matter how competent your content team is. Broken links ruin the user experience and reduce trust in your organization. Hard to read sentences reduce people’s understanding of your site. Unplanned downtime creates extra strain on your resources.

With automated testing for spelling, grammar, broken links, readability, and uptime, you can be sure of a brilliant user experience, every time.

Fix the important things first

Silktide automatically prioritizes website issues by severity, number and difficulty, presenting solutions to individual team members.

Your team will have different skill sets and roles. Not everyone will be able to handle every challenge, so Silktide allows you to hand tasks to team members based on difficulty level.

Your content editors can see only relevant fixes (broken links or readability), while your development team can focus on technical issues (mobile compatibility or code fixes).

Being unable to catch and identify issues was one of our main issues with Siteimprove. It wasn’t until we started using Silktide we realized how much was missing.
