Accessibility ready WordPress themes.

Some automated testing tools

Manual testing for everyone

The first accessibility testing tool to use is your keyboard. Put down the mouse, and use the tab, arrow, and enter keys, and the space bar, to access the site.

Can you get around? Use the forms, dropdowns, buttons? Get out of the modals?

User testing

Next, get people you know to help out. Ask people who use assistive technology if they can use the site. Pay them to test it.



Images has nothing to do with accessibility, but it’s a nice little utility for reducing image file size. It’s also available as the Compress JPEG & PNG images WordPress plugin. is another good utility for reducing image file size.
