Testing for website accessibility issues

The community of website users with disabilities or impairments is as wide-ranging and diverse as any other. In an ideal world, every site would adapt to the needs of every potential user. Unfortunately, website accessibility doesn’t always come cheaply. Services like Siteimprove Accessibility run automated scans that pinpoint accessibility issues across a website. We also developed an open source accessibility conformance testing engine https://github.com/Siteimprove/alfa to do better scans. This talk will focus on what is technically relevant to make a website accessible and how does Siteimprove checks for accessibility issues.
