Accessibility

Ever thought about the level of frustration that some of your website's visitors experience when you don't do any accessibility testing?

Let us show you with a simple example.

Ok, so...

What is web accessibility exactly?

When you build a website, you experience it from your own point of view. You look at it, interact with every page, visit it on your phone... and you conclude that everything looks good.

Accessibility is about usability and inclusivity. It's about making sure everyone has a good experience, like you had, no matter how they consume your content.

Some people use a mouse. Some use a trackpad. Some navigate with their keyboard. Some use screen readers. Some see colours like you do. Some do not. We could keep going all day.

By following well-documented accessibility standards such as the WCAG, you can ensure that everyone has a good browsing experience on your site.

Got it! So...

How can I check if my website is accessible?

There are many tools out there that can help you detect accessibility issues on a webpage, such as WAVE, Deque's axe or Google Lighthouse.

However, most of these tools require that you manually scan each page of your website, one by one.

Koalati's accessibility tool scans your entire website automatically and provides you with actionable recommendations on which issues are present on your site, and how you can fix them.

But keep in mind...

Not every accessibility issue can be detected by tools

Automated tools do a great job, but some accessibility issues simply cannot be automated.

In addition to fixing the issues reported by your favorite tool, you should also test your website manually to ensure that everything is usable, accessible, and standardized.

To learn more about this, we recommend you take a look at WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines), as well as Deque's approach to manual testing.
