Introducing Sa11y: Your new content accessibility checker!

We’re excited to introduce you to Sa11y, the accessibility quality assurance assistant! Sa11y works as a simple in-page checker that visually highlights common accessibility and usability issues. Geared towards content authors, Sa11y straightforwardly identifies errors or warnings at the source with a simple tooltip on how to fix them. 

Logged-in view with Sa11y enabled. Sa11y detected two issues: a non-descript "learn more" link and a skipped heading.

Before using this tool, we strongly encourage you to review some content accessibility basics.

View an overview and demo of how Sa11y works.

Available to all TMU blog editors

Sa11y is enabled by default for all TMU blog owners and content editors. No installation necessary. Sa11y appears in Preview mode on all pages where a logged-in user has permissions to edit the page.

Customize using Advanced Settings

Although Sa11y works out-of-the-box, you can use the Advanced Settings page to customize the experience for website authors and adapt Sa11y to your theme. Learn how to customize the Advanced Settings.

  1. On the sidebar, hover on Settings, then click Sa11y.
  2. Uncheck the first checkbox labelled Enable Sa11y.
