10.4  Testing with Other Tools

Other than screen readers, persons with disabilities may use a variety of other tools to interact with a website. Two particular types of widely used tools are:

Screen Magnification Tools – these commonly used tools allow people to zoom into sections of a screen and change the contrast levels.

  • Test a website with these tools and rectify issues found.

Voice Control Tools – some severe motor disabilities leave using voice commands as the only means to interact with a website. People speak into a microphone with commands such as "next link", "go", etc.

  • Testing using these tools reveals issues which are difficult to identify through the other methods.
