Manual accessibility testing techniques can vary widely. Manual testing has the benefit of being highly accurate, provided the person doing the manual testing is sufficiently qualified. Manual testing allows finding accessibility problems which cannot be found in the automatic testing. DoR estimates that automatic tools can only find 25% to 30% of accessibility issues.
