In this video series with supplemental blog articles, I demonstrate how to prepare for an accessibility test by setting up your testing environment and configuring a testing spreadsheet. Then we explore a sample webpage and begin testing a component.
This information is aimed at anyone who wants to better understand accessibility testing.
I’ve worked with OpenText to improve its usability and accessibility practices, learning everything I can about accessibility and becoming the subject matter expert. At the request of management, I created a plan that identifies gaps in training, testing and remediation.
I performed the first audit of an OpenText website back in 2015, looking at just WCAG 2.0 Level A success criteria, and there was a lot of work to be done. When I audited the redesign in 2019, it was evident the team has made many improvements and now incorporate accessibility checks for new content.
