W3C Checker, Web Accessibility checker, Tools to check W3C and Accessibility tool, Web Accessibility Testing Tools for Designers, W3C Checker for Mobile web, W3C Stamdards

From Last Four Months I am working for Banks website like CBI and OBC as they are our Company's Clients.

To achieve the Web Accessibility Level AA we done few things and features implement to our clients website.

But except all I found that do we know that our page has pass Web Accessibility Test.

After searching long time I found few of link which check the web accessibility Level AA.

I want to share those link on my blog so it will be easy to Implement the Web accessibility Level AA to Designers/Developer.

Accessibility testing tools can assist web designers in making their web site accessible to all visitors. Most of the online testers cannot test some checkpoints in the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines at all and can only partially test others.
The most important part before starting Web Accessibility is to Create a well formed structured web page.
We use W3C checker to check structured Validation of web page.
Tests HTML documents for conformance with HTML standards. The HTML Validation Service specifically tests for compliance with Level AA Checkpoint 3.2: “Create documents that validate to published formal grammars”, however it will pick up other accessibility errors such as missing ALT attributes and invalid field labels.
W3C HTML Validator

Tests cascading style sheets to ensure they conform with CSS standards. The CSS Validation Service specifically tests for compliance with Level AA Checkpoint 3.2: “Create documents that validate to published formal grammars”.
The validator is not 100% accurate but passing validation with no errors or warnings is a good indicator that your code is Standards-compliant. One weakness with the validator is that it can get confused if the CSS version is not specified or if the CSS uses a mix of CSS 1 & 2 for example. This can result in inaccurate reports.

Web Accessibility checkers

The WAVE is a page-by-page accessibility evaluator by WebAIM. It tests many, but not all, of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. Also not mention the accessibility level so it can be use to implement basic feature(structured) of web page.

AChecker. This tool checks single HTML pages for conformance with accessibility standards to ensure the content can be accessed by everyone. See the Handbook link to the upper right for more about the Web Accessibility Checker.

By using Its options you can check different level of web accessibility and also check the standard of HTML and CSS.

In short you have all checker facility here you needed to implement to your website.
