Accessibility Tip of the Week: one of the easiest ways to start testing your website

  • Start with your keyboard!
  • Hit the tab key and see what happens - you may see a "skip to content" button that pops up. This means that people can get to the text and not have to tab through all the menus
  • You may also see outlines when you tab through your website - this is the focus feature
  • Here's a link for the keyboard shortcuts you'll need
  • By using the keyboard, you're testing accessibility for people with motor disabilities that make using a mouse difficult
  • You're also seeing how a screen reader works
  • And it's useful if your mouse or trackpad breaks and you're looking up repair information
