re: What is your checklist for making sure your app is accessible? VIEW POST

  • Can I use all controls/interactive elements with keyboard alone?
  • Do I have a clean bill of health from axe/wave extensions
  • Has manual testing been completed using a screen reader (multiple browser/reader pairings)
  • Is the app performant / consider bundle size and time til interactive

These are a minimum, and I'd expect checks to be happening as individual features are added rather than only happening in a regression test.

Also I'm talking about during/after building, the app idea itself and the design should have already been considering accessibility, ideally with user research including disabled and diverse users.


Good point about making accessibility a priority at the beginning. It's much harder to make a project that's already being built accessible later on if that wasn't being considered at the start.
