    What are people saying about axe beta?

    ...this is a fantastic product, and I'm really hoping to be able to get our company to use it as part of their workflow. It's hard to get the rest of the team to buy-in to accessibility, this is a great opportunity for that, so thank you!

    The guided tours will take this to the next level guys! Going past automated testing but making it manageable for my less knowledgeable colleagues. Keep it up!

    What is axe beta?

    The most effective way to build accessible websites and apps is to incorporate accessibility testing into the earliest stages of your development process. Automated accessibility tools like axe have done a lot to help ensure that developers are catching issues while they code, but a lot of accessibility issues still require additional testing performed by an expert.

    Axe beta is a new kind of accessibility testing tool that helps you perform more advanced accessibility testing without having to become an expert. It includes a series of intelligent guided tests that take you through a series of simple questions about your page content and then build an issue report based on your answers.

    • Axe beta tests are performed via a web-based app in conjunction with a Chrome browser extension.
    • It lets you perform more advanced accessibility testing without requiring special accessibility expertise.
    • In addition to the advanced testing modules, axe beta performs all axe automatic tests.
    • With axe beta you can manage multiple accessibility tests, limit the scope of your testing to a single component or part of a page, and you can export issues.
