There is a lot of information out there about accessibility, and we use a selection of tools and resources in our accessibility work at Oklahoma ABLE Tech. There is no reason we shouldn't share some of our favorites. Please use these to help as you create more accessible information technology products.
Accessibility testing should be done throughout a website or web application's design process. There are several great tools to help you to organize and implement a thorough, but not resource-crushing, testing process. Below are some of our favorite resources to help you along the way.
Toolbars run directly from your browser. They let you perform accessibility testing and evaluation on any web page that you bring up, even pages that you have to log into. Like any automated tool, they won't catch everything. But they are a key part of our testing process.
Toolbars aren't the only way to go when it comes to checking web pages for accessibility. There are a lot of different tools that run from websites, too.
There are a few tools that you can download and run directly from your computer. They can be very helpful.
There are a couple of websites that show the differences, both in presentation and in structure, between accessible and inaccessible web pages. Use these to practice your website accessibility testing and experiment with different tools.
