    In addition to automated testing and testing with assistive technologies (AT), manual testing is an important part of web accessibility auditing. A number of simple manual tests will be introduced so you can quickly get a general sense of the accessibility of a website and identify key issues with just a cursory scan. For the developers taking this course, more complex manual testing will also be introduced, involving the examination of source code and dynamically tweaking code to test potential solutions.

    The manual testing strategies discussed in this module include:

    • Tab Key Navigation Test
    • “Select All” Test
    • Code Examination and Repair
    • Media Review
