Welcome to the Accessibility testing section of my site

Getting started with testing

Welcome to the Accessibility testing section of this site. We are using the W3C Web accessibility Guidelines 1.0 for all questions and tests in this section.

Before you start the tests, you might like to think about the following:

Please access one of the test links below to start testing your site. If your site has never taken a test before, it is best to start from the Priority 1 questions.

If you are very new to website accessibility, we will be more than happy to carry out a consultation over the phone or in person if practicable, or via e-mail if you have completed the tests and just want guidance on what to do next. Please e-mail us on accessibility@bswain.co.uk.


Accessibility Tests

Priority 1, Level A Conformance Test

The W3C states that "A Web content developer must satisfy this checkpoint. Otherwise, one or more groups will find it impossible to access information in the document. Satisfying this checkpoint is a basic requirement for some groups to be able to use Web documents."


Priority 2, Level AA Conformance Test

A Web content developer should satisfy this checkpoint. Otherwise, one or more groups will find it difficult to access information in the document. Satisfying this checkpoint will remove significant barriers to accessing Web documents.


Priority 3, Level AAA Conformance Test

A Web content developer may address this checkpoint. Otherwise, one or more groups will find it somewhat difficult to access information in the document. Satisfying this checkpoint will improve access to Web documents.
