Web Accessibility validation tools
The IT Accessibility team has been hard at work providing presentations around the campus to faculty, staff and students centered around web accessibility. The goal of these presentations are to introduce the need and importance of web accessibility around the campus and to introduce everyone to the website accessibility validation tool we now have available for everyone’s use. The name of the product is Siteimprove.
Request access to Siteimprove. Once this request has been submitted you will be granted access and email confirmation will be sent to have you log in to establish your account.
This is the first step in determining the areas of focus as it relates to web accessibility for your sites. The validation software will generate very detailed reports and we can assist you in prioritizing these reports to determine your next steps in resolving any issues that may exist.
Additional tools to check for website accessibility include browser plugins:
- Siteimprove Extension - Chrome
- Wave Extension - Firefox and Chrome
- aXe Extension by Deque - Firefox and Chrome
- Lighthouse Extension - Chrome
