Keep doing it this way for the best experience possible. No other tools can detect those better than the human eye.

In fact, you might get some information from automated tools but not enough to cover them all. Plus, those are for sighted people to test. They are the experts on them just like we are the experts on blind matters.

Subject: [WebAIM] Tips on totally blind testing for the low vision accessibility

Hi Team,

I would like to know the methodologies totally blind accessibility auditors follow to test the low vision criterias.
As there are number of tools for color contrast, I mainly would like to know how do you tackle:
1. Keyboard focus indicator.
2. Zoom (200%) does not break the visibility of the content.
3. High contrast does not break particular elements.

I usually get these test cases tested by my sighted counter parts.

Thanks & Regards,
Mohith B. P.
