Testing Tools

The best approach to testing for accessibility is to combine automated and manual techniques. We have gathered a group of tools that can be used in conjunction with the Visa accessibility test procedure.

Browser Extensions

Most modern browsers like Chrome, Edge, and Firefox are good for testing because thay are available across platforms and they all support our primary automated testing tool. The Accessibility Insights browser extension is a great tool for auditing and getting code snippets. The Accessibility Insights tool is used early in the testing process to check for high level errors before starting extensive manual testing.

Standalone Tools

The W3C code validator is used to ensure that all code meets WCAG 4.1 Parsing requirements and helps create accessible content that within HTML specifications. ANDI, a common 508 testing tool, is important for testing as it can be used to target individual elements of a page including, headings, links, buttons, etc.

Screen Readers

Web testing is done using a combination of JAWS, NVDA, and VoiceOver. Mobile web and native mobile apps are tested with TalkBack on Android OS and VoiceOver on iOS.
