AMA: Vox Product Accessibility Guidelines

    As a front-end developer, for testing accessibility, I always start with the tota11y bookmarklet. It's really intuitive to use and gives suggestions for fixes right within the page. I typically use this tool several times when building something and fix accessibility issues as I go. I'll regularly check with designers if there are any contrast issues so we can fix those together. Once the project is a little further along, I always test navigating the page with keyboard and then if I have time, a screen reader.

    The most important thing to keep in mind is to test things as you build them so it's not too overwhelming at the end to make updates.
