Tools for testing accessibility
Built-in accessibility checkers
All Stanford Sites have two built-in accessibility checkers. One within the WYSIWYG editor, and one that displays when you're logged in and viewing a page. To learn more about these, go to Accessibility Checkers.
A simple way you can check the accessibility on an individual page is by using browser plugins and online accessibility tools.
Site-wide monitoring and testing
As part of the Stanford community, you have free access to Siteimprove, an accessibility and quality assurance platform to scan and monitor your website. Stanford Web Services will work with you to set up a testing site per our policy on automated scanning tools.
Siteimprove scans a site approximately every 5 days. If you've made changes to your site and want to check results right away, there are browser plugins that will check accessibility on the current page.
Manual accessibility testing
Many accessibility issues cannot be detected with an automated tool. For more comprehensive accessibility testing, you may want to consider manual testing on all or part of your site.
