Project management have the power to really add to better deliveries and scope management. So it must be natural for project managers to also treat accessibility as a first class citizen, always in scope and always a part of definition of done
axe-hackathon video is now live and I decided to transcribe my presentation’s questions and answers regarding aXeSiA and publish the feedback I got from the committee as well.
Automatic tests can help a bit. WCAG evaluation methodology provides a good start for test focus. And if we add page popularity scoring and simple page complexity scoring, then we can really focus on the potentially difficult pages in our manual testing efforts.
Different automatic tools can produce different results. Accessibility conformance testing rules help a bit but there are still potential differences. And, again, automatic tools cover up to a portion when testing for WCAG success criteria, so please do test manually and with users to really make your products accessible
Not really surprisingly – aXeSiA did not won axe-hackathon. And I never dreamed that it will. It was just an experiment for me personally. But this will not mean that aXeSiA is retiring – I will make it a tool I can use often. And a tool I can really tweak as I need and like. Congratulation to other projects and especially Inclusiville. If I had the time I would be happy to work on all other projects as well as they are really good.
aXeSiA – my open source contribution to accessibility testing and axe-hackathon. We all like to use browser extensions to test the pages but aXeSiA makes our work easier if we want to automate it.
