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.
