Edinburgh Accessibility and Inclusive Design Meetup: Making Accessibility testing just part of the process

Making Accessibility testing just part of the process

Alistair will provide an overview of modern Devops / Continuous Delivery practices, in order to illustrate how the infrastructure used to support these activities can also be used to support effective / efficient accessibility testing.

In his presentation he'll demonstrate;

• some examples that utilise a stand-alone Accessibility Testing Engine (written in JavaScript),

• where in the development pipeline accessibility testing can be done,

• and with what type of tests.

Accessibility testing can simply become part of your process.
