Accessibility Testing and Checking
Automated tools are a quick way to tell if there are immediate and impactful accessibility issues. Some can also give you heading structure and quick color contrast checks.
- Wave from WebAIM: wave.webaim.org
- SiteImprove Extension (Chrome)
- Axe Extension (Chrome and Firefox)
- Colour Contrast Analyzer (MacOS and Windows)
This list provides the most commonly used screen readers, and how to use them for accessibility testing.
- JAWS (Windows, trial version)
- NVDA (Windows)
- VoiceOver (MacOS/iOS)
Keyboard testing can tell you if the order of content matches the visual layout and if there are features that are difficult to access without a mouse.
