Automating your accessibility testing with Selenium and Axe
Modern day laws make accessibility a key requirement for many applications. This presents a challenge for many testing teams. Luckily there are things like W3C’s WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) that help testers understand accessibility standards. But it’s even better for teams that are using Selenium because it is now fairly easy to extend your existing Selenium test suite with accessibility checks. In this session we will explore extending your Selenium suite with Axe. Axe being an open source accessibility testing framework. We will begin by talking about how you can add Axe to your existing project. After that we will cover how you can run the accessibility checks. Finally, we will talk about how to report your results and what those results mean.
