Accessibility Checker - Is Your Website Accessible?
With EXPERTE.com's Accessibility Checker, you can find out how accessible your website is. The tool crawls your site, making sure that each subpage can be correctly displayed by screen readers, allowing even blind and visually-impaired users to make full use of it.
The accessibility test assesses 41 features across eight categories. The most important categories are:
Our test checks whether the site's navigation is consistent and accessible.
ARIA is a semantic HTML extension that makes websites more accessible for those with disabilities. Our test checks whether ARIA has been correctly implemented.
Names and labels
Among other things, our test also checks whether form fields and buttons are marked with meaningful labels, and if images have alternative text.
For a significant number of users, text with low contrast is difficult or impossible to read. Our test checks whether the contrast ratio between background and foreground colors is sufficient.
Tables and lists
Screen readers offer functions that make navigating tables and lists much easier. We check whether these have been implemented correctly.
Audio & Video
If a video contains subtitles, those with hearing impairments users can better understand its content. This test checks if there are correct markups.
Internationalization & Localization
When you specify a valid language on your site, screen readers can correctly display text. Our test checks whether a valid language has been specified.
What does website accessibility mean?
An accessible website is one that is designed in such a way that people with disabilities and impairments of any kind can use it without restriction.
Why should my website be accessible?
An accessible website can be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of their impairments or disabilities. This enables you to reach a larger target group, increase your site's usability, and contribute to integrating those with impairments into the Internet.
How does the Accessibility Checker work?
After entering a URL, EXPERTE.com's Accessibility Checker crawls your website, examining up to 500 URLs on it for accessibility. The test is based on Lighthouse, an open-source tool, with the score (from 0-100) indicating your site's technical accessibility.
Please note, that an automated accessibility check is only able to detect a subset of issues and that manual testing is always encouraged.
