Session 3: Presentation 2: Andrew Arch, Intopia Looking after your family’s future - accessibility for an ageing population Andrew Arch

Session 3: Presentation 3: Ian Laslett
Manual and Automated Comprehensive Testing Ian Laslett
When your website can span from hundreds to thousands of pages and considering that there are different WCAG 2.0 success criteria (62 that is!), your team possibly does a lot of code check. Automated tests are essential when developing or maintaining a website and of course identifying errors on a technical level. But, as the saying goes, “Robots will not take over the world”. There are many accessibility criteria successes that still requires the human touch. A lot of it. It is essential for a compliant website to have a good balance of manual and automated testing.
