Here at Pa11y, we think making the web more accessible improves it for everyone. So we publish a range of free and open source tools to help designers and developers make their web pages more accessible:
A command-line interface which loads web pages and highlights any accessibility issues it finds. Useful in CI, or for when you want to run a one-off test against a web page.
A web dashboard which automatically tests web pages for accessibility issues daily. Graphs help you track improvements and regressions over time. Useful for non-developers to see how your sites perform.
The JSON-based webservice that backs Pa11y Dashboard. Useful if you want to build your own dashboard-like front end, or repurpose the data.
Here are some useful articles written by Pa11y users and contributors:
- Setting up An Accessibility Dashboard from Scratch with Pa11y on DigitalOcean
- Monitoring Web Accessibility Compliance With Pa11y Dashboard
- Accessibility Testing With Pa11y
