Accessibility Testing


For Information Technology, accessibility is measured by a variety of factors, including:

  • Conformance with applicable accessibility standards (e.g., WCAG, UAAG, ATAG, WCAG2ICT)
  • Completion of accessibility testing protocols
  • Compatibility with assistive technologies
  • Development and adoption of Equally Effective Alternative Access Plan (EEAAP)

Testing techniques described in this section can help you to better understand barriers to access that may reside in your technology. Not all techniques will apply in all scenarios; look for tools and techniques that meet the needs of your unit and its technology.
