Web Accessibility at Fordham University Libraries: Accessibility Evaluation Tools

Evaluating Accessibility

This page covers tools to help analyze digital and/or web-based content for accessibility.

If you have questions about Fordham websites, please use the tools on the right side of this page.

Please keep in mind that no automated tool will ever be 100% accurate in detecting all possible accessibility issues.

To analyze accessibility, try the following:

  • Use the accessibility principles and guidance listed throughout in this guide including the checklists below providing background information. These checklists will help you read and interpret the reports produced by accessibility checking tools.
  • Compare results after trying various automated tools below. How do the separate findings agree or disagree?
  • Listen to people with disabilities who report access issues. Seeking feedback and documenting access issues will help you move towards an effective solution.
