The Siteimprove Accessibility Checker is a free tool available as a Google Chrome Extension to check any webpage for accessibility issues at any given time. The Siteimprove Accessibility Checker gives you:

  • An immediate overview of your page's accessibility issues
  • Clear explanation of how they affect your users
  • Specific recommendation on how issues found

All analysis is done entirely within the Chrome browser, allowing secure evaluation of password-protected or non-public pages, multi-step forms, and dynamic content.

Note: The Siteimprove Accessibility Chrome extension can be used on HTML web page content. It is not possible to check PDF content with this extension.

I'm already a Siteimprove Accessibility customer, how can I benefit from using the Siteimprove Accessibility Checker?

  • Check pages directly in your browser without giving anyone access to the content of the tested page
  • Check pages that require a login on the fly (e.g. intranets or other firewall-protected pages)
  • Check page stages and content that is only activated on user input (e.g. multi-step forms)
  • Check dynamic content such as JavaScript with immediate results
  • Check non-public pages (e.g. during development)
