The accessibility of digital content should be evaluated by performing both software-assisted and manual checks to identify issues. Think about accessibility during your content's creation and test whenever you add additional content or features. If possible, test your content with screen reader software.
You should frequently assess the accessibility of your digital content, such as a single document or web page, a web site, or an entire domain. A thorough process includes both the use of automated tools and manual assessments.
