Benefits of Accessibility Scanning Tools
An accessibility scanning tool allows organization to easily scan a site for accessibility issues. Scanning thousands of pages at a time saves a lot of time. It can also report on the site’s current state of accessibility. Whether it’s needed for litigation or another purpose, it will help show the current state of accessibility at a given point of time. In our current highly-litigious culture, it makes even more sense to ensure that basic web accessibility is taken seriously. The easiest way to take the target off your back is to address the four key accessibility violations:
1. Alt-Text on Graphics
2. Labels on Form Controls
3. Improper Table Markup
4. Inaccessible Image Maps
Below is an example of a report which provides an overview of a generic university campus, representing disparate groups of content providers and web developers. Users can drill down into smaller groups for more fine-grained details.
