Testing is an essential part of making sure your website is accessible to all users. A combination of both automated and manual testing can efficiently provide the whole picture of your site’s accessibility and identify issues that need fixing. Recording and sharing your results helps you track progress toward your site’s accessibility goals.
Digital Accessibility Services (DAS) has created a template for assessing the accessibility of websites and presenting issues in a meaningful way to colleagues, leadership, vendors, or anyone else interested in remediating accessibility issues and monitoring progress.
Accessibility Issues Tracker Template
The Accessibility Issues Tracker spreadsheet is a framework for capturing accessibility issues on a website and providing the information needed to remediate them. Start by recording results from Siteimprove or other automated tools in this spreadsheet. Then, as you manually test your site with the keyboard, screen reader, and content review, add any issues to the sheet. Collecting all issues in one place may help identify patterns based on sorting by different columns. Additionally, each row in the spreadsheet (representing an issue) could be entered into a bug tracking system.
