Accessibility Testing with OpKey:

OpKey users can now perform automated UI testing of websites. For this, there are two new keywords added to the OpKey. They are as follows:

  1. AccessibilityCheckPointSettings
  2. ValidatePageAccessibility


Let us automate a website, Lifetime Fitness (https://www.lifetime.life/) using OpKey Web by using OpKey Accessibility Testing keywords. Let us create a Test Case with OpKey Accessibility Testing keywords, as described below.

Steps to be followed:

Let us add test steps using Visual QA Testing specific keywords in the Test Case.

  • Add a Test Step using OpenBrowser keyword. Provide Browser name & website URL.
