Last Edited March 19, 2019 by Garenne Bigby in Blog

We have been rolling out v3.0 features over the last few weeks and here is a summary of what’s now live for users.


version 3.0 

Accessibility Update

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1

You can now test against the latest Web Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1) from the World Wide Web Consortium (WC3). The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 address a wide array of recommendations for making online content more accessible. The new guidelines cover the accessibility of content on desktops, laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. Following these guidelines will also often make Web content more usable to users in general.

Private Testing / Authentication

You can now test a private website or private web application against Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. If you have a login page that can open in any browser, our system can authenticate and test each page against Section 508, WCAG 2.0, and WCAG 2.1 guidelines. This feature is only available via paid subscription.

Schedule Tests / Monitoring

Organization and Enterprise plans now have the ability to schedule accessibility tests each month to receive notifications on changes to a website or online applications accessibility. Your remediation progress is displayed a line graph for a quick assessment of your website or online application. This feature is only available via paid subscription. This feature is only available via paid subscription.

Archive Issues

WCAG 2.1 requires manual testing for specific criteria. You can now manually archive issues that have been manually tested or remediated from your live or test environment using the Archive Problem. This feature can also be used to remove any false positives that you believe are incorrect and have been manually tested. If you don't want ever to see that problem in a report, use the Always Archive Problem which keeps that reported error from coming back.

Page Search

It is challenging to audit a large website for accessibility. We have added Search tool that can filter pages by page title or page URL. If you are looking a subdirectory of pages, search with the common part of the URL to view all associated pages.

Multi-Language URLs

View encoded and decoded URLs in our accessibility reports. You will see both the encoded and decoded versions of a URL with the ability to search either text for filtering URLs.

Guideline Groups / Error Codes

Accessibility Guideline Group names and Error Codes are now clearly displayed next to each error in our text-based report and visualize view.

 

Advanced Crawling

Subdirectory Only

We were asked to create a fast way to crawl subdirectories, and we have delivered with the Subdirectory Only feature. Add the subdirectory, ex. /subdirectory/ and only the specified subdirectory will be crawled for Inventory, Audit, and Accessibility testing. This is very useful for quick crawling of a small section of a website without having to crawl the entire web property. This feature is only available via paid subscription.

 

Sitemap Export

Export to Vector

You can now export sitemaps to Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), which is a vector graphic format that is based on XML. An SVG image will remain crisp and clear at any resolution or size and is excellent for interactivity and animation. The SVG specification is an open standard developed by the World Wide Consortium (W3C) since 1999. This feature is only available via paid subscription.
