Automated Web Accessibility Testing Tools
We have two approved tools to check the Accessibility of your website:
- PopeTech (requires a user account)
- Editoria11y (available to all Drupal content editors)
PopeTech is an in-depth automated scanning tool based on the WebAIM WAVE tool, among the world's most used automated accessibility testing tools. ITS Accessibility uses PopeTech to monitor the accessibility of Cal State LA's web presence. If you are the designated person that edits your office, department, division, or college website or are a web accessibility liaison, you should already have an account in PopeTech. For assistance with PopeTech or to request a new account, please get in touch with ITS Accessibility.
Editorially is automatically available to all employees who are Drupal content editors. Once you have authenticated and are on a webpage to 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 web page's context for ease of use. Editora11y runs through accessibility issues in the same manner that a spell checker runs through a document. This functionality means content editors easily comprehend information on the fly while editing their web pages.
