Automatic Accessibility Testing for All

Cecilie Haugstvedt

13:30-17:00 CEST Tuesday 7th June

Accessibility testing tools are of great help in making an accessible website and shaping a more inclusive web. Automatic accessibility tests can be of even greater help, freeing up time to focus on the changes that will make your website better for everyone.

In this workshop you’ll learn how to set up and write your own automatic accessibility tests using Axe and Cypress. We’ll cover how to write both unit tests and integration tests and will look at what to test at each level. While doing this we’ll also cover some of the most common accessibility errors that can be discovered automatically and learn how to fix them.

We will do this workshop ensemble style – mob testing with small groups where the whole group works on the same thing, at the same time, in the same space, and at the same computer
