Scaling Accessibility testing

Insights into how web accessibility testing can be scaled for larger websites and applications.

With the need for web apps to be more accessible than ever, it has never been more important to test them thoroughly. There's no question that testers need to make sure the site is accessible, but a lot of the tests could be done automatically.

Fundamentally, automated tools are better at finding mistakes in the code, but people are better at figuring out how well an app can be learned by its end users. With component-based development, in which web apps are constructed using reusable components and pages are generated as part of reusable templates, an efficient accessibility testing plan is critical before launching a web app with thousands of pages. Knowing what flaws may be discovered at the code level and what types of testing should be left to humans is critical to ensuring that the technique is not just efficient but also successful.

In this session, we'll go through the accessibility testing strategy for big web applications or several web apps created using multisite technologies in general. We'll look at various free and commercial solutions for automated accessibility testing. We'll also go through the holes that people must fill. Accurate reporting for web applications tested at scale is essential for ensuring that problems discovered are actually resolved.

Last but not least, we'll talk about culture to ensure that the whole team supports accessibility to guarantee long-term success.
