Silktide is our solution to this, as it will scan our website regularly to ensure any accessibility problems can be quickly identified and resolved by our team. We want our digital channels to be accessible to all through both meeting this standards, but also ensuring consistency, quality and simplicity within all of our content.

Fantastic accessibility platform!

-Paul Sudron, Durham County Council

Silktide has been fundamental in increasing awareness of accessibility across all our websites. It’s easy to use and the training modules have helped the wider organisation to understand further why accessibility is so important. The platform itself can be tailored to different user groups so that everyone can have the right level of access to be sure that no one is shown irrelevant information. Being able to see the scores increase when fixes are successfully made makes you really feel like you’ve accomplished something great! The reports of our previous accessibility testing tool were not user friendly and produced a spreadsheet of errors. Silktide’s user interface is far superior and everyone at the organisation has commented to say how much easier it is to use.”

-Kelly Millward, Durham County Council

“Thank you for helping us give our customers a better experience using our web services”

-Hannah Brunt, Milton Keynes City Council

“We value Silktide, because it’s fundamental to our Web Team being able to deliver useful online services to our customers. As a council, those customers are residents and businesses in our city – real people, with lots to do in their busy lives, and with array of needs, we must legally and ethically meet. We’re using Silktide to open web governance conversations with our service areas. Where online services operate outside of our corporate content management system, the tool allows us to demonstrate with staff working in those areas, where they need to discuss updates and changes with their suppliers. Silktide is also supporting our work with producing and revisiting Accessibility Statements.”

“For me, the best part of using Silktide is that it is much more visual compared to the WCAG website, which is very word-heavy and can be challenging to understand at times. Silktide shows you exactly what needs improving, and there are videos that also explain how to fix certain elements, which I find super helpful. Another great factor is that it splits up the work to suit everyone, whether you are the designer, developer or editor. This can be easy to assign certain tasks and then distribute the work and be more efficient.”

-Henna Mistry, Luv Group

“The minimalist interface is really easy to use and allows you great control over each of the Silktide scoring metrics. The ability to dive in to investigate the fix is straightforward as well as presenting a layman term against WCAG 2.1 requirements. Being automated really helps us and the content editing team improve the site’s accessibility without much effort.”

-King Yiu, Luv Group

“We are using Silktide to improve the accessibility across our client’s websites. The benefit of using Silktide is that the tasks are separated to suit different job roles (e.g. content editor, designer, and developer), making it a lot easier to manage the tasks within a team.

-Katie Bulmer, Luv Group

“I use Silktide to improve accessibility across the sites I build”

-Lefki Foka, STIX

“Working in an organisation with specialist web teams and a large editor network of non-specialists, a really big challenge was getting a platform that could satisfy and support both. The deployment process and our Customer Success Manager have been fundamental to getting the tool set up and deployed effectively. The Silktide Academy plus live training sessions (online) have been useful and engaging for both audiences, they are certainly encouraging a renewed interest and focus across our editor network. It was also really important to have a platform that can cope with a large web estate broken down into lots of sections. The team and I are just getting started on the dashboards and reporting, which will become the driver of continuous improvement.”

-Laura Simpson, Newcastle University

The easiest solution to highlight and fix accessibility errors.

-Sam Overson, Kirklees Council

Silktide helps our team to identify and fix website issues in a user-friendly, easy way. The Silktide fundamentals course is a great learning tool for understanding how to use the site. The leaderboard is also a great feature that helps you understand how you’re performing against other departments managing websites within your business. My favourite feature is the Inspector function, which shows you where the problem is on the page by highlighting the content and shows fix suggestions in the left-hand bar.”

Very impressive functionality which is proving essential in helping our website keep improving in its accessibility”

“Silktide has allowed us to achieve the WCAG 2.1 accessibility for a client who prioritizes their website visitors who have disabilities. Silktide has saved us countless hours by showing us exactly which parts of the website needed accessibility improvement.”

-Ben Hall, Services For Education

We would not be able to meet our website accessibility requirements as a local government organisation without Silktide. Their customer service and adaptability is excellent, being supported by their team when needed makes all the difference.”

It’s helping us meet our legal requirements as an NHS Trust and also allows us to make the web experience the best we can”

“The best part of Silktide is the wide range of accessibility tools we can use to enable our website to adhere to Government regulations. It has made us more aware of what we need to do to improve our accessibility and also enabled us to create a work plan in order to improve our accessibility rating. The interface is also extremely simple to use and the regular scans of our website help us to ensure we can fix any issues as soon as possible. As a project manager, it also allows me to give tasks to individuals within the team which makes my job a lot easier.

-James Waite, Rother District Council

“Previously, we had issues with identifying issues within our large-scale website. Silktide makes it easy to identify both positive and negative trends in content accessibility and other areas.”

“We have a clear accessibility score that we are seeking to improve. We can very clearly see what we need to improve upon and the impact of our actions on the score, which is very motivating.”

-Simone Woolley, North Somerset Council

“We use it primarily to monitor the accessibility of our websites, which is not only essential from a user perspective but also from a legal standpoint. There are so many tools out there that claim to diagnose a website’s accessibility, but so many of them do it poorly. With Silktide, it’s obvious you’re getting a deep dive. But as an added bonus, Silktide also scores us on three other major categories: Marketing, Content and User Experience. The interface is simple and easy to use, showing you what is ‘wrong’, why it’s wrong and how to fix it. You can either ignore recommendations, carry out the necessary fixes or ‘teach’ Silktide to accept what it sees as errors – for instance unusual spelling or grammar.”

-Paul Roberts, North Somerset Council

By far the best content quality and accessibility audit platform there is.”

-Sue Davis, Medway Council

“It helps get a whole picture on your website user experience. What is done right and what needs improvement.”

-Alison Hinch, Curotec

“Silktide offers us a lot of insight in the quality of our content and quickly points editors, developers and product owners to possible issues. With an enterprise website and over 200 editors this is not an easy task and Silktide offers us the overview and tools to keep on top of everything.”

“It gives you quick and easy wins that will start to improve your website straight away and Sophie and the team are really helpful.”

-Matt Baldwin, Exeter College, Oxford

“I started in a new role last year in a large company that didn’t have a way to continually review and improve content quality. Bringing Silktide on board has been invaluable in all aspects of monitoring our vast digital footprint. From the basics of misspellings and broken links to accessibility and mobile checks, Silktide is helping us elevate the quality of the content we are providing our customers.”

Silktide is the most user-friendly performance tool we have used. The back end layout is simple to follow and deliberately created, and the quick updating of scores quickly gamified the process of site improvement for us.”

-Rob Turner, Schneider

“We are solving the issues surrounding accessibility of all types on all our sites. The assistance with privacy is helpful as well. We hope to engage with more consumers as a result of our improvements.”

“With an easy-to-use interface, Silktide allows me to both detect and fix errors across our site. The training and support available is also very helpful. I would highly recommend it!”

-Skye M, Medway Council

“The external review of our websites is most helpful. It challenges the assumptions you might make. I like that we can set rules of our own styles too.”

-Nickki Hughes, Cheshire East Council

We are still on our accessibility journey but Silktide is a key part of the progress we have made so far.”

-Angela K, Fife Council

“Since we have been monitoring our sites with Silktide, our accessibility has increased. When completing our accessibility statement, Silktide made it easy to find and therefore list any known issues together with our plan to resolve them.”

“Silktide reduces the amount of staff time spent problem-solving and looking for issues. Before Silktide, we would have to run most tests by hand as well as Googling and reading through the lengthy WCAG guidelines to try and understand the issues we are looking for and trying to fix. Silktide makes it super easy by having everything in one centralized place, and they show you where the problems are.”

Silktide is a valuable tool to increase our website efficiency.”

A life saver when it comes to accessibility.”

-David Moore, University of Leeds

“Clear and concise. Shows you exactly where the issue is and how to fix it.”

Everything is in one place, and the inspector tool pinpoints exactly here the problems are. The descriptions on how to fix issues are easy to understand, and it’s helping us make strides in improving our online content. It’s very satisfying to see the scores improve and be able to track our progress.”

-Rachel Mackenzie, Loughborough University

Silktide brings our digital content together, improving our web accessibility and our reputation. It’s very easy to identify ‘quick wins’ and can be used easily by novices and tech-savvy alike. Training and customer support are excellent and our Head of Customer Success is always available and proactive in keeping us up-to-date.”

Silktide saves us hours and hours of manual work and alerts us to errors before customers or site owners do.”

-Steven Johnson

-Chris Burkill, East Riding of Yorkshire Council

“Developing a site to be accessible is quite a labour intensive task, but Silktide makes it easy.

-Ty Stapleton, University of Prince Edward Island

Silktide is helping our organisation address its digital accessibility needs and aiding in the process of making our websites compliant with digital accessibility standards.”

Heatmap tools help us work out where the specific problems are on a page, rather than just knowing that there is a problem on the page. It’s a lot more reliable and quicker than trying something to see if that was the problem and then checking the data after a couple of months to see if it has improved.”

“As a public school district, we have to make sure that all of our sites are following WCAG and ADA guidelines, and Silktide has helped us stay ahead of the issues. The best part about Silktide is that they want to make the platform work for everyone, no matter what it takes. They are actually invested in making websites accessible and are honest with their customers.”
