Step 4: Checking for Accessibility
You will need to check both the web page and the content for accessibility. This is not as difficult as it might sound. A checklist is provided in Appendix B to help you organize your effort to check the pages. If you are attempting to make corrections to an existing website, the checklist will prove helpful by providing a starting point for tackling the most important issues first. A manual check of the pages is the first and most important step toward creating or repairing a website that meets the established guidelines.
Sites are available to check your pages online:
- ATRC Web Accessibility Checker
- WAVE Web Accessibility Evaluation Tool
- W3C Markup Validation Service
- W3C CSS Validation Service
Remember that even if your web page passes validation, the moment you make a change to it or add additional information, you may have inadvertently created an accessibility problem and need to revalidate.
