Not another checklist! – A testing methodology which explains the what and how of manual accessibility testing
Accessibility testing is hard. How do you up-skill team members to understand WCAG 2.1? How do you explain testing with screen readers? This is a challenge I faced with new team members and requests to standardise the testing.
I created a checklist which made accessibility testing consistent and removed different interpretations and inaccurate assumptions. When a team’s accessibility maturity is low creating a checklist with this methodology results in a testing process anyone can understand.
