Introduction to Manual Accessibility Testing

Session Category Development & Performance Room Room 324 Audience Intermediate Time Slot Thu 2:00pm to 2:45pm (9/14/23)

Automated accessibility scanning tools can only catch around 30% of accessibility issues. To fully meet accessibility standards and make sure everyone is able to use your site, manual testing with assistive technologies is required. We will provide an overview of common manual testing methodologies and demonstrate simple keyboard and screen reader checks you can use to get started. We will also share resources to help you assess the accessibility of your sites. Familiarity with accessibility standards and automated accessibility tools is helpful but not required. These methods are applicable to both Drupal and non-Drupal sites.
