This week we’re going to write another Story for you, as we think it will help you understand Accessibility in today’s web development terms.

In a bustling town where every storefront had a unique tale to tell, there lived a shop owner named Alex. Alex had a charming little boutique, a treasure trove of handcrafted wonders. But there was a twist to Alex’s story – a secret his shop held. Behind the vibrant displays and inviting atmosphere lay a challenge unbeknownst to many: accessibility.

Much like Alex’s boutique, your website might hold hidden challenges. As a small business owner, you’re keen on making your digital storefront as welcoming as your physical one. But here’s the catch: 1 in 4 adults in the U.S. have a disability, and accessibility online is often overlooked. Imagine turning away potential customers simply because they can’t access your website smoothly.

Now, let’s unveil the less-talked-about realm of website accessibility testing tools. These are the unsung heroes ensuring your online space is inclusive and welcoming to all. 

Axw by Deque Systems

First up, say hello to Axe by Deque Systems. This nifty tool scans your website, highlighting accessibility issues and providing detailed explanations on how to fix them. It’s like having a knowledgeable companion guiding you through the process.


Then, there’s WAVE by WebAIM, a user-friendly tool that pinpoints accessibility errors on your website, from missing alt text on images to confusing link text. It’s like having a trusty inspector comb through your site.

Lighthouse by Google

Next, there’s Lighthouse by Google which not only evaluates accessibility but also delves into performance, best practices, and SEO. It’s the Swiss Army knife of website auditing, ensuring your site doesn’t just meet accessibility standards but excels in other areas too.

PageSpeed Insights

Finally, our go-to tool for evaluating performance, accessibility, best practices and SEO is PageSpeed Insights. Similar to Lighthouse it ensures that your website works well both on a Mobile device and on a desktop.
