Possible online services disruption due to Internet related outage

A worldwide technology outage is causing disruption to some State of Illinois online systems.  We are aware of this issue and are diligently working on restoration.

Accessibility Testing

There's a lot you can do to test websites and applications for accessibility without being an accessibility expert:

  • Why Automated Testing Isn't Enough - we use automated testing tools too, but you need to be aware of their limitations.
  • Keyboard Testing - anything you can do with a mouse, you should be able to do from the keyboard. Here's how to check.
  • Visual Testing - you can do a few basic visual tests using only your web browser and Windows settings.
  • Screen Reader Testing - testing with a screen reader is harder than it seems. Here's how to get started, but don't do it without getting some training.
  • Testing Standards - the process the State of Illinois follows when testing accessibility.


The following are example and test files we use for accessibility testing and training:
