Accessibility checker

An accessibility checker is provided when previewing documents and homepages. The checker is run by clicking the black Sunglasses tab at the bottom of the page.


The accessibility checker runs tests and provides notifications against the following areas of accessibility checking:

  • Headings to ensure proper nesting
  • Contrast to report on areas with insufficient contrast
  • Link text to flag any linked text that may be confusing when read by a screen reader
  • Labels to identify any inputs with missing labels
  • Image alt text when read by assistive technologies
  • ARIA landmarks to help assistive technologies understand different areas of a webpage e.g. search, navigation, main content
