Monitor Site Accessibility

No matter how hard you work to make your web site accessible, if you’re adding new content regularly, the accessibility of your site changes equally often. If you change your theme, you may have a whole new set of issues.

Access Monitor does two great things to help you test your site for accessibility.

First, it gives you the freedom of automation – schedule a weekly or monthly report, and get notified each time a report is run. Test a specific set of pages, and return a list of definite accessibility issues.

Second, it only reports accessibility issues that are machine-testable. It’s won’t raise red flags because it couldn’t tell whether an issue is a problem.

Access Monitor uses, an automated accessibility testing service developed by web accessibility guru Karl Groves. Tenon does what an automated tool should do – it delivers a report telling you what the issue is, where it was found, why it’s an issue, and who is affected by it.

A perfect score in Access Monitor doesn’t mean that your web site is accessible – there’s no way around manual testing. But Access Monitor makes sure that if an issue can be found using automation, you’ll know about it.

Test your WordPress Site

Run a one-time test or schedule a test to be run on a weekly or monthly basis. All tests run through this system are saved for later review and comparison so you can track the performance of a page or a test over time.

  • Duplicate issues are filtered out. If an accessibility issue appears on multiple pages, it will be shown the first time it’s identified.
  • Re-run any test from the Accessibility Reports screen at any time. Re-running a test will create a new test on the same pages using the same parameters.
  • Apply rules that will test posts before you publish them and reject publication if they don’t meet your criteria

Test the WordPress Admin

You can test the page you’re viewing using a link in the admin bar labeled ‘A11y Check’.

  • On the front-end, only Pages and individual posts or custom post type pages can be tested. Archive pages are not currently passed to Tenon.
