The Accessibility Toolkit provides a number of reports to display the detected accessibility errors:

  • Error list with direct links, which makes it really easy to navigate to their location and fix them.

  • Activity breakdown, showing pass ratios per activity

  • Content types, showing error counts per type of content

  • Summary report, showing a summary of the other reports combined

The Accessibility Toolkit generates reports of all detected accessibility errors, which can also be broken down by type of content or type of activity. 

  • In the Error list inside of the Accessibility Toolkit a list of the activity, the error or the “check” HTML, and a link to the error to remediate the accessibility issue.
