Re: Tips on totally blind testing for the low vision accessibility

For the keyboard focus indicator, you should know that all browsers have
some sort of indicator built in, which is usually an 1 pixel black dotted
outline. A person who is blind could skim through the CSS to see if
anything is removing that rule, though I know it wouldn't be a fun task.

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,
