This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar Understand more

Trial ? Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.

Making the web inclusive requires serious attention to ensure accessibility is considered and validated at all stages of software delivery. Many of the popular accessibility testing tools are designed for testing after a web application is complete; as a result, issues are detected late and often are harder to fix, accumulating as debt. In our recent internal work on ThoughtWorks websites, we included the open-source accessibility (a11y) testing engine axe-core as part of our build processes. It provided team members with early feedback on adherence to accessibility rules, even during early increments. Not every issue can be found through automated inspection, though. Extending the functionality of axe-core is the commercially available axe DevTools, including functionality that guides team members through exploratory testing for a majority of accessibility issues.
