How we tested this website

This website was last tested on 6th August 2019. The test was carried out by Kirklees Council.

We used this approach to deciding on a sample of pages to test:

  • We tested all web pages using an automated testing tool. Each page was individually tested, the results recorded and accessibility issues which were found were fixed and tested again.
  • We tested PDF documents using the automated accessibility checker within Adobe Acrobat Pro and manually tested reading order and colour contrast.

We tested our main website platform, available at www.knh.org.uk
