eSSENTIAL Accessibility and Level Access have merged! Read More
Great news for developers, testers, and product managers. We’ve added a next-level accessibility testing tool to your toolkit: The eA Accessibility Checker, our new Chrome browser extension.
Unique to eA, teams can now use our web accessibility checker to scan a customer user flow, bundle that flow into a single data set, and sync those findings back to the eA Platform for analysis and actioning.
Benefits of the eA Accessibility Checker
Test a critical flow, aggregate as a single scan:The ability to zero-in on an important flow, like a shopping checkout or an online booking is critical to your customers’ experience. Developers can now aggregate that flow as a single test to identify accessibility barriers that would otherwise prevent a customer from being able to complete that flow from start to finish. Teams can then upload that scan as a single data set into the eA Platform for analysis and actioning (other scanners limit testing to one page at a time). Prioritize, organize, and integrate accessibility work: While eA’s new Accessibility Checker adds important capabilities to traditional automated accessibility scanning and testing, testing is just the first step in any sustainable accessibility program. With the powerful capabilities of the eA Platform, users can sync scanning data, prioritize based on bug severity, organize work into projects for actioning, and push specific tasks into familiar issue tracking systems like Jira and Azure DevOps—weaving accessibility work into existing workflows. Scan hard-to-reach environments: The eA Accessibility Checker scans any production or pre-production environment (including content that’s dynamically generated), pop-ups, and those environments that are hard-to-reach or secured. Catch bugs earlier: You’ll be able to easily and efficiently find and fix bugs in live environments, but more importantly, catch them before they go live to prevent a barrier for a user with a disability. Work smarter, not harder with the eA Accessibility Checker and its integration with the eA Platform. Here’s a demo to give you a sneak peek:
