Axe for Designers in Figma
Over 8,000 designers are already using the axe for Designers to build more inclusive experiences. Start sending your Dev team accessibility annotations now.
Why choose axe for Designers?
Our WCAG expertise is unrivaled. In fact, 15 Deque employees are on W3C Accessibility Working Groups writing the standards.
Automatically detect common accessibility issues across the entire design, or individual components.
Auto-annotations ensure your accessible designs are adopted by dev teams as you intended.
Design with accessibility in mind
Start building accessibility into your Figma designs and pass your intent on to Developers with confidence. Stop accessibility barriers before they start and deliver a design that works for everyone, including people with disabilities.
Use axe for Designers right in your Figma workspace.
Start with the *auto-annotation feature to speed your workflow. Our annotations even include short codes to ensure your intent is coded correctly by developers.
Auto-scan your designs for color contrast, target size, and headings to find out in seconds where you have accessibility issues, then save and share the details.
Thank you so much for making this! This is a really powerful way to annotate for accessibility. The plugin explains clearly about each “type” of annotation, enabling designers to learn more as they work and facilitating more productive conversations between designers and engineers“

This plugin is the best thing to happen to Figma. It’s awesome! I’ve been using Axe for over 5 years now and it’s so great to be able to get a even fraction of that suite inside of Figma. Keep up the great work!”
