I am Marcy Sutton. Ask me anything.


How do I get started with doing web accessibility testing? Is there a standard checklist one can adhere to?

There was a very similar question earlier, you can find my answer here: https://hashnode.com/ama/with-marcy-sutton-ciu7ybenl0235za53kdqpw0f5#ciudv1ov30k5neq53ifj07rjr

I would start by tabbing through a page with the keyboard to make sure you know where you are on the page (using the default CSS outline or custom :focus styles) and that all actions can be completed without a mouse. You could also use one of the aXe extensions to run an audit: http://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/axe/lhdoppojpmngadmnindnejefpokejbdd?hl=en-US
