Accessibility checklist

How to use the checklist

The order closely matched the order of WCAG guidelines, with some success criteria’s being grouped for ease of testing. It is designed to be easy to understand and to indicate who in the team should carry out the testing and fix issues.

It is not a substitute for the WCAG 2 specification, and it may not cover all use cases. A link to each WCAG 2 success criterion is included if further reading is required.

Designers, developers, content editors and testers should use the following guidance to check digital content at key stages of development, for example at Design and development stage – UAT stage - and at go live.

Accessibility testing should be carried out alongside usability, functionality, browser, and device testing.
