Has anyone used these tools?

Wave

Been using them where I am to get as close to the WCAG as we can

Anybody? No.

Worst first post ever :crazy_face:

Hah, it may be more suited to our accessibility section. Though not sure that would currently make a huge difference in responses.

I guess it would help to understand what you are trying to achieve and do.

I know about the html sniffer

Just wondering what else others use really

Sorry for missing this @rob_diamond! I use the WAVE tool as a Chrome extension and tend to have quite a few in Chrome and Firefox. Funkify is really good for showing disability simulations. Obviously the Chrome Developer tools. Landmarks gives you a quick look at, well, landmarks.

Recently I’ve added EasyRead and Sentence Segmentation to look at the impact of third party tools altering our site in reviewing the updated WCAG2.1 Guidelines. Hope you find one/some useful Rob.

For Ember.js apps, there is addon that wrapps Deque Labs’ axe-core accessibility testing engine very nicely.

test(‘Some test case’, function(assert) {
visit(’/’);
a11yAudit();
andThen(() => assert.ok(true, ‘no a11y errors found!’));
});

And you suddenly check 68 rules.
