Accessibility Testing Tools
Web Testing Tools
We have two approved tools to check the Accessibility of your website:
- SiteImprove (requires a user account)
- Editoria11y (available to all Drupal content editors)
SiteImprove is an in-depth scanning tool that provides reports and statistics for your website and monitors the Accessibility of Cal State LA's web presence. If you are the designated person in charge of your office, department, division, or college website or are a web accessibility liaison; you should already have an account in SiteImprove. For assistance with SiteImprove or to request a new account, please get in touch with ITS Accessibility.
Editorially is available to all employees who are Drupal content editors. Once you have authenticated and are on a webpage for which you have access as a content editor, Editoria11y is present and checks for accessibility issues automatically. Note that Editora11y does not check while you are editing a page. However, when looking at a page you have content editor access to, Editora11y will alert you to possible accessibility problems and suggest items requiring manual verification. The alerts are provided within the context of the webpage for ease of use. Editora11y runs through accessibility issues in the same manner that a spell checker runs through a document. This functionality means that content editors easily comprehend information on the fly as they edit their web pages.
Document Testing Tools
Microsoft Office and Adobe applications include built-in tools that check the Accessibility of a document.
