Who are we?

We are digital accessibility specialists currently located in Perth, Western Australia, which services Australia, and Kuwait City, Kuwait, which services the Gulf Cooperation Council area, but we continue to grow and expand internationally. We aim to assist organizations in ensuring that access to their digital resources meets the internationally recognized WCAG standard.

We have a team of highly skilled and experienced technical accessibility auditors, trainers, and consultants who provide services to ensure your websites and other digital resources meet the current legally required standards.

It makes good business sense to ensure your website is not only WCAG compliant but is accessible to all potential clients and empowers all users. 

In July 2021, ADWebKey (aka Web Key IT) was acquired by AbleDocs GLOBAL. We are proud to be a part of the AbleDocs family, as part of the ADWeb offerings. 

ADWebKey:

  • is a full member of the W3C
  • provides accessibility consulting, technical assessment, user testing, auditing and accreditation, training, and remedial assistance and
  • provides a remediation service for existing web-based documents, including PDF, and Microsoft documents to ensure accessibility.
