If you have a smartphone, you can do a self evaluation of your site. If not, we’d be happy to send a screenshot of your site and a free report on how your site measures against best practices such as:
- Does your site load quickly and is it readable without enlarging the text?
- Can users navigate and search easily?
- Are the buttons large enough to be used with a finger?
- Is there enough contrast and does the content fit onscreen?
