Extreme Accessibility: Rapid Discovery and Remediation, Part 1

Over the last 15 years, I’ve done dozens of accessibility audits. I feel confident that if you hired me to do an audit, you’d be extremely happy with the results of the audit, the level of detail, and the guidance provided to fix the errors I’ve found. I take a lot of pride in the […]

A “Global Top 10” isn’t your Top Ten

Recently there’s been a bit of a kerfuffle over a LinkedIn article purporting to have done extensive analysis on accessibility across the web in an attempt to create a “Top 10 List” of priorities.

Great, I have test results. Now what?

The best feature of an automated testing tool is also its worst: The ability to go through large amounts of code and find errors that don’t require a human to find. Using an automated tool you should be able to test hundreds of pages in a matter of minutes. Finding the average number of pages […]

Getting instant return from your accessibility testing

The Accessibility Business Case is something I’m very interested in thinking and talking about. Historically, many in the web accessibility field have produced various facts and figures providing a business justification for accessibility. On my personal site, I’ve discussed issue prevention as a business case. Of all business case arguments, it is the one I’ve seen […]
