siteSifter supplies automated results for this year’s SOCITM Better Connected 2010 Project

For the 7th year in a row, the UK’s Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) has entrusted Greytower and siteSifter with the automated part of this year’s SOCITM Better Connected audit (BC10).

During this project — designed to assist local government in making good content accessible to all — a total of 433 sites were to be automatically tested against a SOCITM–specific baseline, and the results collated to form the basis for manual review.

Greytower’s siteSifter testing tool went through approximately two hundred pages from each site — 86,600 pages in all — in a little less than thirty six hours, and delivered over sixteen megabytes worth of custom reports.

We here at Greytower would like to thank the RNIB for their continued trust in us, and wish them a successful continuation of the project!
