Why are there errors when using testing tools such as WAVE and Lighthouse?

Testing tools such as WAVE and Lighthouse are free tools for checking your site’s accessibility level. These tools are good at checking basic elements of a site such as duplicate links, title hierarchies, duplicate titles, lack of image descriptions, or ALT text among other things. 

Since accessiBe is a session-based tool, these compliance tools will not be able to pick up on accessiBe adjustments. This is because accessiBe is designed to automatically activate when it detects that a user with assistive technology is attempting to access the site. This ensures that all adjustments are easily activated and that the browsing experience of site visitors that don’t need the adjustments isn’t affected at all.

Therefore, since compliance tools do not access a website in the form of assistive technology, they will not be able to analyze accessiBe’s presence on a website and none of the accessibility adjustments that go with it.

accessiBe does however have integration with WAVE for this purpose so that users can see accessiBe’s adjustments while using the compliance tool.
