Transcripted Summary

You've reached the final subchapter and I just want to say thank you and really well done.

This is my first video course and I really hope that you found it useful.

Now that you've seen how to automate some of your web accessibility requirements with Axe, here's a gentle reminder that this is not a foolproof solution.

It doesn't catch all accessibility issues.

For example, if you have an accessibility failure that an image doesn't have the alt text attribute and then this attribute is added in to fix the issue, this doesn't guarantee that the alt text will make sense.

You can add random values for all text and the automated test will still pass so human intervention is always needed.

It will never be a replacement for testing with real users as well, but complements it instead.

# Next Steps

Now that you know of the tools that can help you with automating some of your accessibility requirements, here are some next steps that you can do.

Talk to your team about accessibility.

If you're working on a new project, it's the best time to include accessibility earlier on and get everyone familiarized with the accessibility standards and the different ways that you can do accessibility testing.

If it's an existing project already and you want to get started, perform an audit of your application and share your findings with the team.

Use the different accessibility testing tools that I have mentioned in this course as a way to support your audit.

Finally, just start doing accessibility testing and advocating for it.

It will also be a great idea to get actual users with disabilities to test your application so you get a deep understanding on what their experience is with using it.

I'd like to finish this course off by saying that the best approach is to always combine multiple techniques when testing and always keep your users in mind.

I hope you enjoyed this course as much as I did.

It's been such a privilege to be invited by Test Automation University and I hope you learned something new from this course.
