La accesibilidad web beneficia a todo el mundo

En el artículo Quality ⊃ Good Design ⊃ Inclusive Interface he encontrado la siguiente definición:

Universal web accessibility helps us create sites that are usable by the widest, most diverse audience, rather than creating bolt-on solutions that might benefit one group at the expense of another.

Y algunos ejemplos de cómo la accesibilidad web nos beneficia a todos:

I can't easily see low-contrast web content
- a user with cataracts
- any user accessing your web page on a mobile phone in bright sunlight

I can't easily manipulate your web page
- a user with a hand amputation
- any user standing in a crowded train, holding on to a bar for balance

I can't listen to your web content
- a user with hearing loss
- any user without headphones, accessing a web page in quiet restaurant

I can't easily manipulate small or fiddly UI controls
- a user with loss of fine motor control
- any user accessing a web page while also walking

I can't make sense of long complicated text passages on your web page
- a user with an attention deficit disorder
- any user reading web content while distracted by a crying child

Cómo automatizar las pruebas de accesibilidad

En el artículo Automating Your Accessibility Tests se explica un método para automatizar las pruebas de accesibilidad:
Accessibility is one of those things we all wish we were better at. It can lead to a bunch of questions like: how do we make our site better? How do we test what we have done? Should we spend time each day going through our site to check everything by hand? Or just hope that everyone on our team has remembered to check their changes are accessible?
This is where automated accessibility tests can come in. We can set up automated tests and have them run whenever someone makes a pull request, and even alongside end-to-end tests, too.
Automated tests can’t cover everything however; only 20 to 50% of accessibility issues can be detected automatically. For example, we can’t yet automate the comparison of an alt attribute with an image’s content, and there are some screen reader tests that need to be carried out by hand too. To ensure our site is as accessible as possible, we will still need to carry out manual tests, and I will cover these later.
