How to conduct a manual test
Simple manual tests do not require extensive accessibility knowledge, expensive software solutions, or a suite of assistive technology applications.
However, it’s not feasible or realistic to perform manual tests on every single webpage. Start by reviewing some of these key pages:
- Site templates
- Interactive forms
- Dynamic content pages
- Pages with dialog modals and alert notifications
- Key entry and exit pages (including account login and recovery pages)
- Help and assistance pages
Webpages that receive a significant amount of traffic or page views may also be candidates for manual testing while using automated testing for other pages.
Follow the guide below to manually assess your webpages or download a printable checklist.
