Expand Your Test Coverage: Manual And Automated Accessibility Testing Unite
In this session, learn how to expand your accessibility test coverage beyond automation. Join Carie Fisher, Sr. Accessibility Consultant at Deque Systems, and Harris Schneiderman, Principal UI Engineer at Deque Systems, as they demonstrate the basics of automated testing, a new kind of guided testing, and examples of how to test manually.
With very little resources, you can still make a meaningful difference. Learn how to maximize your accessibility impact using these key lessons:
- Catch a ton of common accessibility issues with automated tools.
