Automatic accessibility testing isn’t the only thing you should be checking.

Shared by

Automated accessibility tests like Lighthouse are great, but don't forgot there's still some other manual checks you need to do to ensure compliance.

Don’t forget these other important accessibility checks in addition to automated testing.

In short:

  1. Automatic tests
  2. Check image descriptions
  3. Disable all styles
  4. Validate HTML
  5. Check the document outline
  6. Grayscale mode
