  1. 1. "How do you get this damn thing to stop talking?!": Web accessibility testing (when it’s only part of your job) Phil Springall @pipstopher September 28, 2017 / #a11yTOConf
  2. 2. Who I’m not Screenshots from Looky! app
  3. 3. I’m also not a… • Web developer • QA analyst • Person with a disability
  4. 4. Agenda • Why you should test • What you can do • What you probably shouldn’t do
  5. 5. Why you should test • Accessibility is kind of like ice cream • Most of us don’t know what we’re doing • Some of us had better know what we’re doing
  6. 6. What you can do • Download stuff (toolbars, add-ons, simulators, automated testers) • Ignore WCAG (just kidding!… sort of)
  7. 7. This shouldn’t happen “Hi! I’m calling about WCAG 2.0 section 3.1.2 Language of Parts. You’re aware that the human language of each passage of phrase in your content wasn’t programmatically determined, right?”
  8. 8. This might happen “Who’s this Fran Sigh person you keep linking to?”
  9. 9. What you can do • Download stuff (toolbars, add-ons, simulators, automated testers) • Ignore WCAG (just kidding!... sort of) • Do what your users do, the way they do it
  10. 10. You’re doing a great job Phil
  11. 11. What you shouldn’t do • Think that you know your user • Confuse accessibility for usability • Hire an accessibility consultant (more than once)
  12. 12. Summary • You don’t have to be an expert but you’ll never be one if you don’t start • Test what you know in ways, and with people, that are new to you • The person speaking right now is NOT Paul Giamatti
  13. 13. Questions Phil Springall / @pipstopher
