Overview

Accessibility testing tool from TPGi

The ARC Toolkit is a set of accessibility tools which aids developers in identifying accessibility problems and features for WCAG 2.0, WCAG 2.1, WCAG 2.2, EN 301 549, and Section 508 The toolkit is designed to be integrated into automated and manual accessibility tests and works alongside the auditor or developer in order to simplify repetitive tasks and interactively explore accessibility features and problems. The ARC Toolkit is tightly integrated with Chrome’s Developer Tools and uses the ARC rule set, the same rules used by default in the ARC platform. This allows developers and quality assurance testers to take their ARC testing into their development environments and thoroughly investigate issues raised in ARC scans. Launched from the Developer Tools, the ARC Toolkit panel includes a set of tests that shows results both in the panel and in the page itself. Each test can be toggled on and off so types of issues can be isolated. Issues can be selected and viewed directly in the Elements panel. It runs completely local within Chrome and works within iframes, so it can evaluate any page you can browse to. If you would like to pages that are not live on a website but are in development, turn on the option to "Allow access to file URLs". Because this tool is actively used by the TPGi team, there are frequent updates as we further develop and refine the rules and features. If you would like training on how to use ARC Toolkit for testing, please contact TPGi at https://www.tpgi.com/contact/. This extension is governed by the license agreement at https://www.tpgi.com/arc-toolkit-the-service-terms-of-service/.

For years, I've used this tool to quickly test accessibility on a page. It's helpful for scanning local files, pages behind a firewall, and most of all, for testing deeper into user journeys. A lot of accessibility tools only test a page as it appears on a page load. There's some other cool features beyond scanning such as to test text spacing or tab order. There's a learning curve but I can't find another free tool that has all this stuff.

Since the last update to the toolkit, I'm seeing two errors. For the issue of "Aria label on incompatible element", it's showing in ARC toolkit as a "Best Practice", not as the error it is according to the ARC scan from their website. Also, the issue "Modal has no accessible name" is no longer showing in ARC toolkit scans. Other than that, at my place of work, we really miss the feature that showed the tab order.
