Testing Tips

As a content creator and editor, you are responsible for making sure the content you provide meets accessibility standards.

For tips on making your content accessible check out Accessible Content Tips.

Testing Tools

A simple way you can check the accessibility on your page is by using the "Web Accessibility Evaluation Tool" at https://wave.webaim.org/ and pasting your URL into the Web page address... field.

If you find yourself repeatedly checking accessibility, you may want to install the WAVE extension. It's available for both Chrome and Firefox browsers at https://wave.webaim.org/extension/.

For more comprehensive accessibility testing, you may want to consider using services from Level Access. You can learn more at: https://soap.stanford.edu/make-accessible.
