Accessibility Testing for Engineers

Accessibility Testing for Engineers

Ahoy, engineering team!

I'd like to share some best practices around accessibility testing: what to look for, how to test it, how to balance the work with other priorities.

The important things to remember are that:

  1. Accessibility is about access for disabled people. Marginalizing their experience forever is continuous discrimination, full stop.
  2. The best time to start is now. The earlier you address it the better, but you can always iterate as you move forward.

Merging a pull request

To apply a pull request, make sure your local develop branch is up to date. Then, create a new branch for that pull request:

git checkout -b some-user-feature

Run the following commands to apply all commits from that pull request on top of your branch's local history:

var jsdom = require('jsdom');
// Some html page
var html = [
'<p>An image without an alt tag! <img src="some.jpg" /></p>',
'<h2>Not an h1</h2>',
