Automated Tests by BrowserStack Accessibility Testing

We are excited to announce the general availability of Automated Tests, the automation package within our Accessibility Testing product. It's purpose-built to make accessibility testing automation effortless, empowering you to achieve faster & stress-free web accessibility.

Automating accessibility testing is as beneficial as automating functional tests, if not more so. However, existing methods of automating accessibility testing are often inadequate and inefficient, leaving teams to struggle with: 

๐Ÿ˜“ Large effort required to integrate accessibility testing into test builds 

๐Ÿ˜  High volume of duplicate issues

๐Ÿ˜• Prioritizing debugging among thousands of issues

๐Ÿ” Traceability of accessibility issues

๐Ÿ““ Creating accessibility-focused reports

โณ High maintenance overhead

Automated Tests by BrowserStack Accessibility Testing puts an end to all these struggles. It is your superpower for streamlining the entire accessibility testing cycle. Integrable with your builds in seconds, it saves hours of strenuous effort otherwise spent manually inserting static analyzers into test cases. This also means youโ€™re spared from the extensive maintenance overhead that typically accompanies any build changes!

And that's not allโ€” all accessibility-focused build reports are conveniently accessible on the reporting dashboard, empowering you to maintain a firm grip on your websiteโ€™s accessibility while enhancing debugging capabilities.
