Accessibility testing means to make sure that your website is user-friendly for the users with disabilities like hearing, color blindness, old age and other disadvantaged groups. It is a subset of usability testing. The Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) defines and lays out the strategy for preliminary and conformance reviews of websites for accessibility testing. The Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) consists of a list of software tools. These tools help with conformance evaluations.

A lot of online tools are also available these days to performing streamlined accessibility testing of websites. Here, we have compiled a list of such tools for you –

3. Automated Accessibility Testing Tool

4. CKEditor 4 Accessibility Checker

5. Cynthia Says

6. Tenon

Apart from that, an important point to note here is that accessibility has a deeper meaning. Apart from making sure that your web application is suitable for use by people with disabilities, the factor is an indicator of how accessible your website is for different users. For instance, in case different users accessing your website using different platforms or operating systems can operate it flawlessly, your website stands well on the accessibility front. A lot of online tools like LambdaTest are available today that help you test your website for cross-browser accessibility. Tools like LamdaTest make sure that your website is accessible to each and every section of users.
