Did you know it’s Global Accessibility Awareness day today? 1 billion people worldwide have disabilities – but they’re often very underserved by today’s digital products.
Accessibility removes barriers and unlocks the possible. In support of GAAD (Global Accessibility Awareness Day) today, we’re helping raise awareness by sharing three tools that can help your business make improvements for greater accessibility.
- WAVE – Web Accessibility Evaluation Tool
There are a number of free tools that can help designers and developers test the accessibility of their pages. One of these is WAVE – Web Accessibility Evaluation Tool from the folks at WebAIM.
- Colour Contrast Analyzer
The Colour Contrast Analyser (CCA) is a tool, provided by TPGi, that helps you determine the legibility of text and the contrast of visual elements, such as graphical controls and visual indicators.
- axe (Deque)
Deque’s axe Browser Extension integrates into Chrome and Firefox’s built-in Developer Tools to allow convenient access to a page’s accessibility barriers, in a way already familiar to most Web Developers.
