You have achieved and celebrated releasing a fast and responsive website, but…is it accessible to everyone? Between legal requirements and doing right by all of your application’s users, QA teams need to move beyond functional correctness and focus on non-functional requirements such as accessibility. In this workshop, we will learn the importance of accessibility testing, the difference between manual and automated tests, and how to tackle and prioritize accessibility issues. You’ll come away with an understanding of how to test and resolve accessibility issues in your own application.

 

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand why accessibility testing is critical to quality
  • How to test your application manually and with automation
  • Strategies to prioritize accessibility issues and integrate testing into your pipeline

Accessibility is a critical component of website quality to ensure your app is accessible to all of your users. I’m excited to recommend some practices to help testers grow their accessibility testing knowledge.
