21. Testing

21.1 - Test for accessibility.

What:
Testing includes functional tests with assistive technology, browser and operating system functionality as well as automated testing software.

Why:
Testing will determine whether accessibility has actually been accomplished.

How:
Use browser and operating system accessibility features and leading assistive technology software such as screen readers and magnifiers to test for functional accessibility. Use an automated testing tool to identify common accessibility problems. If possible, do user testing with people with disabilities.
