GAAD 2022: Addressing the most common accessibility issue with axe DevTools


Now available on-demand.

In celebration of Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD), the axe DevTools team released a brand new browser extension feature that helps to address the #1 most common accessibility violation saving users tons of time.

Introducing The New Color Contrast Analyzer

After speaking with users, we quickly learned that the “needs review” color contrast issues are a major pain point. With this release, Pro users can now leverage the power of our machine learning algorithms to substantially reduce this problem.

Learn how these new algorithms automatically determine if any “needs review” color contrast issues from an automatic scan are, in fact, issues or not.

Join Jason Wilson and Harris Schneiderman as they demonstrate this exciting Pro feature.
