Topic: Quick Accessibility Tests for Websites

While using screen readers and other assistive technologies to review a web page for accessibility issues is highly effective, such testing does require skill and understanding of how such assistive technology applications function in order to obtain usable information. Rather than focusing on assistive technology functionality, it is possible to develop a quick baseline assessment of a web page's level of accessibility using a few simple automated tools and manual techniques to highlight the most problematic issues.

This month's IT Accessibility Office Hours focuses on conducting simple web accessibility tests to identify accessibility barriers using a combination solutions. Two browser-based tools, WAVE and AXE, have both received recent updates resulting in improved accessibility checks to identify errors. Such tools, in conjunction with a short checklist of manual accessibility tests, can highlight existing problems and user interface failures. While not a substitute for a full accessibility evaluation, these quick tests can provide a high-level overview of existing accessibility barriers and point to corrective solutions.

The IT Accessibility Office Hours offer the opportunity to ask questions and share best practices regarding web and IT accessibility issues. Audience participation is welcome!
