Fixing your website’s accessibility issues can be a challenge. Now, Lumar is making it easier than ever to ensure your website is inclusive, accessible, and compliant with WCAG and local accessibility laws with the introduction of new AI-assisted accessibility recommendations

Our website accessibility tools already help you audit your site for WCAG compliance and digital accessibility best practices, monitor your site for new accessibility issues, and align with developers through automated web accessibility QA testing

But website teams don’t need to just find accessibility issues — they need to fix them! Often, this can involve spending hours scouring WCAG documentation to find the right solutions. With Lumar’s new AI-powered accessibility suggestions, we’re saving teams time with tailored, WCAG-informed suggested fixes for each issue you uncover — including suggested code snippets to resolve the exact issue at hand. 

Here’s a peak of what the new accessibility recommendations look like in the Lumar platform:


How do the Suggested Accessibility Solutions work?

The suggested accessibility solutions available within the Lumar platform are created using OpenAI’s ChatGPT and optimized to generate tailored solutions from only a trusted set of web accessibility documentation including the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), for maximum accuracy. 

Our team has crafted and refined prompts to generate the relevant fix recommendations with ChatGPT, which are then delivered directly within the Lumar platform. We are continuously reviewing the responses generated and will continue to further refine these prompts for ongoing improvement.
