First of two courses that enable QA testers to progressively introduce elements of WCAG testing into their work. This Fundamentals course strips away the complexities of WCAG to introduce initial success criteria/checkpoints that are easy to pick up by testers who never wish to become “experts in WCAG”, without the need for additional tools.
This course looks at a core set of simple accessibility test methodologies your QA team can integrate with their current test scripts while a site is being built to find accessibility errors throughout the build process when it’s more cost-effective to fix them. The tests can also be used post-launch to test updated or new content. It provides hands-on experience of accessibility tests that can reliably be done manually, often without the need for additional tools.
We recommend this course is booked with the QA Testers – Advanced course, so you learn how to execute all WCAG 2.1 AA accessibility tests on desktop and mobile.
