    For beginners who would love to add accessibility testing to their skill set, do you have recommendations on some valuable resources, topics and tools to start with?

    @alishahenderson, thanks for your comment on how to carry out accessibility testing. And I do agree with you that the best way of doing accessibility testing for a site is to make a real people with disabilities access the site. But this doesn’t help when the product is in staging. Because it will be inspected by a QA person, who reports if there are any issues and to make it more clear the question was to en-light QA people who would like to add accessibility testing as a new skill set with possible resources.

    Since you have mentioned about PAS 78, it is a best practice guide and it provides advice on issues with accessibility. They have to be familiar with WCAG 2.0 as well. Also found this guide https://dojo.ministryoftesting.com/dojo/lessons/30-days-of-accessibility-testing, it should definitely help anyone to kick start their accessibility career

    <span style=”color: #000000; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;”>A lot of web content can be made accessible for differently-abled just by ensuring that correct Hypertext Markup Language elements are being used for all the relevant things. Also, amateur test engineers should check whether Alt text and long text have been used for all images present on the webpage or not. Other things that should be kept in mind include proper contrast on images, size of fonts and accessible layout of the page.</span>
