WordPress Accessibility Day 2023

A Practical Guide To Automated Accessibility

September 28, 2023 at 11:00 UTC

Automated accessibility testing has become the norm to bringing accessibility into the development lifecycle. As great as it is to have accessibility in the day to day development, many of the teams that adopt these tools and testing frameworks are overwhelmed by the sheer number of them and do not know where to start.

In this session, we will help clear the confusion and give you the knowledge to effectively using automation in the day to day web development. We will cover accessible linting, accessibility testing libraries and how to effectively include them in your end to end or unit test cases. Finally, we will discuss creating accessibility regression tests that can further enhance and ensure accessible content!
