New websites or templates should be approved before release. Request a website review from the Web Accessibilty Sub-Committee after performing testing steps 1-3 below.
Note that the review process takes time, so plan ahead, and perform your own testing beforehand to speed up the process.
Testing for Web Accessibility: Developers
Testing should be done throughout development to catch issues early. Always re-test after adding a new element. We recommend the following testing process. Our Accessibility Testing Guide walks you through this process.
- Automated Testing
- Use the keyboard to navigate with TAB, ENTER, and UP & DOWN Arrows.
Accessibility for Content Managers
Use the WAVE Extension in Chrome to check for:
- Red flags (errors) - Fix what you can, including headings, links, and alternate text for images
- Yellow flags (warnings) - These require a manual check
Request Content Manager training or help for your department or college.
