Using functional test scripts for accessibility testing too

A vast number of software products today, have world-wide acceptance but what makes some of them stand out is their inclusiveness in serving specially able people – individuals who lack physical or mental faculties. In conjunction with delivering a product that caters to the needs of specially able people, effective testing of the software is required to make sure all accessibility guidelines are implemented facilitating a smooth user experience, for the disabled too.

The need for continuous more accessibility testing, cost involved in setting up the testing conditions, effort in executing relevant scenarios and complexity in complying to government accessibility standards, are all what triggered us to come up with this solution at QA InfoTech. We recently hosted a webinar for a cost-effective solution that takes accessibility testing to the next level where our existing functional automation shell can be leveraged to embed accessibility testing as well, leading to faster, comprehensive, reliable and integrated results. Hence the title, “An Automated Testing Itinerary to Achieve Accessibility” where we will see how Selenium functional testing scripts can be used for accessibility testing too! The recording from the webinar is available here
