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 […]

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 […]

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. There were many strong and negative reactions to the article and I took them to task on my own site for […]

Ecosystem vs. Library

“How does Tenon differ from X library?” is a question we often get from potential customers. “X Library” in this case is usually one of aXe, the Google Accessibility Developer tools library, HTML Code Sniffer, and the like. This is a sensible question and we’re happy that potential customers are out there doing their research […]
