  • Accessibility testing

    Hi everyone!

    I am wondering if anybody has had experience with accessibility testing? Is this area of QA testing on demand?
    I tried to look for the positions for accessibility testing but I was not able to find as many results. Any thoughts?

    Thank you.

    Accessibility focuses on how a disabled person accesses or benefits from a site, system or application. Accessibility is an important part of the designing your site and should be considered throughout the development process. Section 508 (usability.gov) is the governing principle and it requires that all government information be accessible to disabled users.

    Implementing Accessibility
    Accessible sites present information through multiple sensory channels, such as sound and sight, and they allow for additional means of site navigation and interactivity beyond the typical point-and-click-interface: keyboard-based control and voice-based navigation. The combination of a multisensory approach and a multi-interactivity approach allows disabled users to access the same information as nondisabled users.

    Value of Making Accessibility a Priority
    By making your website accessible, you are ensuring that all of your potential users, including people with disabilities, have a decent user experience and are able to easily access your information. By implementing accessibility best practices, you are also improving the usability of the site for all users.

    W3C notes that, “accessibility overlaps with other best practices such as mobile web design Site exit disclaimer, device independence, multi-modal interaction, usability, design for older users Site exit disclaimer, and .... you can reed more on usability.gov
