Practical hands-on accessibility testing preparation

If you are attending my Practical hands-on accessibility testing tutorial/workshop, you will benefit from setting up some of the tools we’ll discuss ahead of the workshop. Note that there are no costs involved with installing and using the following tools:

Screen reader:

If you are on Windows:

If you are on OS X:

  • VoiceOver is already built-in

If you are on Linux:


Firefox add-ons:

  • aXe accessibility testing (also available on Chrome)
  • Zoom Page WE – To emulate text resize
  • Web developer toolbar (if you aren’t already using other code sniffing tools)
  • ColorZilla colour picker (if you don’t already have a colour picker you like)

Website to test

Think of a website that you’d like to assess during the tutorial. Note that we won’t have time to do a full assessment, but you should have a site or a page that you can play with during the exercises.


If you have questions or need clarification about the upcoming tutorial/workshop, please feel free to contact me or to leave a comment here.
