Automating Accessibility Testing:

aXE, Pa11y and AATT are examples of automated testing libraries that can be integrated with a continuous integration test suite.

Browser automation using tools like Selenium or PhantomJS can also support automating some aspects of accessibility testing.

Examining the Accessibility API:

Inspector (Windows) and Accessibility Inspector

(OS X) are system tools for graphically examining

the Accessibility API; the Firefox DOM Inspector

is also useful for this.

Communities of Practice

Web Accessibility Initiative, WebAIM and the web-a11y Slack group are open groups for discussing web accessibility topics.
