“A large proportion of my work over the last six years has been web accessibility auditing, using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
I do manual testing, using the standard browsers, and light tools like the AIS Accessibility toolbar, and my use of assistive technology includes the built in Windows and browser accessibility features, and JAWS screenreader. I have also provided consultancy and training services to complement the auditing. “
