Siteimprove: A tool for testing web accessibility

Web development best practices include bringing your website to level AA conformance based on Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. Web accessibility is an ongoing process, and meeting the required success criteria calls for a combination of automated and manual testing.

By using the Siteimprove evaluation service, you will identify approximately 75% of common web accessibility issues found across sites. Additional manual testing will help identify the remaining issues.
