Evaluating Web Content

Accessibility testing should involve a combination of automated tests and manual evaluations in order to assess the technical and functional accessibility of a website. For example, while an automated test can identify if there is an accessibility violation at a technical level (e.g., missing alternate text for images), such an automated test cannot assess accurately the quality of that text representation for the image. Evaluating a website for accessibility requires attention to both automated and manual accessibility tests in order to ensure all individuals have the opportunity to engage with the content.
