I found the whole accreditation process simple and effective from a customer perspective. The DAC team tested the site from their remote location, providing a comprehensive report. The report findings were then processed by the Development Team and appropriate re-testing undertaken. Where necessary there was direct communitaction between the Development team and the DAC team - this was key to resolving some of the 'trickier' issues. Throughout the process the DAC team provided profressional and effecive services resulting in an accedited site ready for our go-live date. We will certainly be considering DAC as a suppier in any such future projects.

Channel 4 has been working with the Digital Accessibility Centre since it’s inception in January 2011. The DAC provide us with a broad range of accessibility services, including auditing, policy writing and training, all of which are delivered to very high standards of professionalism. However it is their on-site consultancy offering which we have found most useful. Once a fortnight a DAC consultant spends a day on-site with us and is able to review projects and discuss queries with anyone who is interested. He has a very thorough knowledge of accessibility and is able to provide advice and practical solutions to variety of issues and questions. This has been immensely helpful in raising the issue of digital inclusion around the office. Many colleagues find this approach much more flexible than a traditional audit. On several occasions the consultant has also brought one of DAC’s disabled team members with him and this has been incredibly illuminating. There is no substitute for being able to speak directly to someone with a disability and talk to them about their experiences and hear their anecdotes about everyday life as a user of assistive technology. I think this approach in particular has really helped Channel 4 employees to gain a greater understanding of how disabled people use digital technologies.
We're pleased with the high accreditation rating awarded and the support provided by Digital Accessibility Centre. It is important that all people can access information on our website where they can find information about their neighbourhood officers, local priorities and what neighbourhood policing teams are doing to deal with the things that matter to people.
