Testing Website Accessibility

To help evaluate the accessibility of a web site, type its URL into the WAVE (web accessibility evaluation) tool. See the WAVE help page for information about how it works.

You can also use the Color Contrast Checker from WebAIM.

More web accessibility evaluation tools are listed through the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative. Start with their "Easy Checks" list for a preliminary review of a site's accessibility.
