Hey JavaScript Air friends!

The Deque Labs team is doing some really cool stuff for automated accessibility testing, bringing their years of accessibility expertise to mainstream web developers. The open source axe-core framework, written entirely in JavaScript, supports a bunch of integrations: unit testing, Selenium Webdriver, Chrome and Firefox extensions, Grunt, React, and more. Get the low-down on how to integrate accessibility testing into your workflow with the core team from Deque.

From this episode:

“It’s important to underline the fact that automation is only going to get you so far and you can’t expect automation to do everything for you. At the end of the day, accessibility is about usability too.” 
Dylan Barrell, on accessibility testing
