It’s a common misconception amongst development teams that web accessibility testing is a difficult and manual process that will slow down the CI/CD process. While some manual testing is required to achieve full accessibility compliance, automated testing can do a significant amount of work and save your development teams’ resources.
Integrating automated accessibility testing in your CI/CD pipeline encourages learning, improves the quality of code, and encourages developers to be more aware of creating accessible content before it’s published.
By incorporating quality gates in strategic locations and taking advantage of free tools and technologies, your development team can promptly address and resolve accessibility issues as they arise. This approach enables them to effectively utilize automated accessibility results, leading to a more seamless and inclusive user experience.
