Accessibility Testing Strategies

11:00am Friday 15 November (Stream Two)

Everyone needs to test their digital products for accessibility compliance, but it’s time consuming to get an audit and difficult to fit into your workflow. Meanwhile, automated tests can’t cover all the WCAG requirements. How can you make sure you’re doing comprehensive, effective tests in a timely way?

You need an accessibility testing strategy. We’ll cover choosing the right tools, writing useful test cases and even how to persuade people to join in. Let Chris and Julie share their experiences and processes with you so you can develop your own customised plan.
