New Feature in Winter 2018: Projects API and Spider

Easily the most important change to Tenon in the Winter 2018 release is the addition of the Projects API and Spider. The Projects API allows for fully RESTful access to Projects on Tenon, allowing you to list, add, edit, and delete projects from outside of the Tenon UI. This seems somewhat simplistic on the surface, […]

Winter 2018 Improvements: More Power Behind Site Monitors

By far, the biggest differentiator between Tenon and all other accessibility tools is that our API-first approach allows us unrivaled flexibility. This is demonstrated quite easily by the number of integrations and related tools that make use of Tenon. Our API gives us the ability to quickly make new things that make accessibility testing easier. […]

Rapid remediation with Tenon. Beat bad code with a Mallet

Courseware remediation During November 2017, Tenon was approached by a new customer to remediate for them four (4) online courses. This customer is migrating scores of courses to a new platform for a large government agency. Because this agency is in the Executive Branch of the Federal Government, they’re required to comply with Section 508 […]

No Subscription Required

One thing that has become apparent is that not all Tenon users can make use of a regularly-billed subscription. One of our goals, as a business, is to put robust testing into the hands of those for whom pricey tools like Worldspace, AMP, and Compliance Sherriff were too expensive. There are still some users out […]

How to prevent inaccessible code from making it to your site using Tenon and Husky

Today I added a new branch to the grunt-tenon-demo repository on GitHub to show how to use Tenon as a Git Hook, using Husky. Personally, I find Git’s own documentation on Git hooks to be woefully inadequate. Fortunately there are some good tutorials out there for creating Git hooks. In some cases, Git hooks don’t […]

Rapid Discovery and Remediation

This is the continuation of a previous post: Extreme Accessibility: Rapid Discovery And Remediation, Part 1. In this post, I’ll explain a better process. Over the last 15 years, I’ve arrived at the hard-to-avoid conclusion that the traditional accessibility audit process is not focused on making things better for the customer, it is focused on […]

Sign up for the first Tenon accessibility bootcamp, October 10 & 11 2017

Throughout my 15-year long career in accessibility, I’ve trained several hundred developers, QA, design, and product staff. Unfortunately, all of this training was done privately, for groups of web staff at a single client at a time. I think it is time we opened training to individuals and small groups who may not have the […]

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 […]

Announcing Tenon Site Monitors

We often get questions from customers wanting to test their entire site. As we finish the Spider functionality, I also want to share a new feature. Imagine being able to test your entire site as easily as simply adding Google Analytics to your site. That’s the idea behind Site Monitors. Using Site Monitors, you can […]
