A New Generation of Testing

  • What if you could…

    • …not just identify images with missing alt attributes, but compare each image with its alt attribute

    • …narrow down the pages you need to review for use of colour, change in language, use of tables


A New Generation of Testing

  • PurpleCop is an automated testing tool developed by PurpleTop

  • It collates various tags and text in your site so that you can review them for accessibility compliance


A New Generation of Testing

  • PurpleCop takes the guesswork out of accessibility testing

  • It allows, you, the owner of the site to decide whether an issue is an accessibility failure or not


A New Generation of Testing

  • Who has used PurpleCop:

    • Australian Centre for the Moving Image

    • Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games

    • City of Port Phillip Council

    • Scope Victoria

    • DHS Companion Card


A New Generation of Testing

  • “Over the past year ACMI has found that PurpleCop reports are a great resource to help meet out site’s accessibility commitment. It provides useful, user-friendly feedback that targets only the areas of the site that need our attention.”

  • Andrew RobinsonACMI Web Manager


Case Studies

  • ACMI

    • 25+ sub-sites

    • 2,000+ pages

    • 100+ content authors
