Accessibility tool audit
Automated accessibility checkers can be used to help identify accessibility issues in digital services. They're good for finding simple and obvious problems, but aren't able to detect many accessibility issues.
This repo contains a collection of accessibility failures to be used for testing automated accessibility tools and test results from those tools.
Read our blog post about how we did the automated tool testing.
About the test cases
The test cases are a collection of the wide variety of potential accessibility issues that can exist. There's probably loads more we haven't thought of.
Contributing / updating results
We welcome issues / pull requests for updated or new test cases or tool results. All relevant content can be found in
tests.json. (All the HTML files are automatically created from that one file.)

Make sure you have the gulp command installed beforehand.
npm install -g gulp
Then run the following commands to install the dependencies and generate the static html files.
npm install gulp
Now you can run a local HTTP server to serve the files in this directory. Such as:
and click http://localhost:8000/ to see the generated HTML output.
You can also run gulp in dev mode, which would keep watching for files to change until you kill it.
