Add more accessibility scanners to make a more comprehensive report
Problem to solve
Accessibility scanning is great but the current offering is limited, this leads to missed items in the existing scan.
User experience goal
When an accessibility scan is run by GitLab, I want the result to be comprehensive/inclusive of serious issues, so that everyone can utilize my app / website.
pa11y is just one scanner, there are others such as the offering from IBM and more as mentioned in the original implementation item.
We should investigate a few things:
- How do scans of the existing engine and alternative engine differ?
- Content and readability of report
- Speed of scan
- What would the level of effort be to combine reports from multiple scanners to a singular format for presentation in the UI?
Permissions and Security
Availability & Testing
What does success look like, and how can we measure that?
What is the type of buyer?
Is this a cross-stage feature?
