Standard accessibility testing tools can only highlight a small number of the issues with your site.
MAWD combines the best of both worlds by using automated tests wherever possible and then requiring your input for the tricky stuff.
MAWD is designed to pick up 100% of the issues with a site, but she needs your help to do it.Try MAWD Free
MAWD's still in beta right now, so it doesn't check against all the WCAG criteria just yet. It can spot 18 different issues with a webpage.
12 of the issues can not be spotted by an automated testing tool.
Using a Chrome browser extension, MAWD gathers data about your site.
You can then find the captured data here, and work through it with MAWD to assess the accessibility of your site.
Sometimes, MAWD can determine whether something fails an accessibility test without your input.
In other cases, MAWD will have to ask you questions about the content.
MAWD will explain to you what to look for and allow you to record the results. You don't need any knowledge of the accessibility guidelines.
You'll be left with a report on the accessibility of the site.
Every issue has an explanation of why it might be an issue for users and also suggestions for how to fix it.
Because MAWD captures data using a Chrome extension, you can use it to test sites that aren't on the public internet, even localhost or simple HTML files.
Every issue reported by MAWD includes an explanation of how it will affect users, and some suggestions for how you can fix it.
