Continuing our work on improving the accessibility of sites built in Webflow, today we’re introducing a new Audit panel within the Designer that proactively flags common accessibility-related issues on your site.
The Audit panel is currently in beta as we work on planned enhancements and gather feedback.
This beta release of the Audit panel displays 3 high-impact audits for the page you’re currently viewing:
For a closer look at each of how each of these audits appears in the Audit panel, along with information on how to fix them, check out our article on Webflow University.
As part of this update, we’ve also consolidated some canvas display controls from the bottom left side of the Designer into the canvas settings dropdown at the top (alongside controls to change the size of the actual canvas).
The controls we’re moving are:
You can still access these controls quickly with the keyboard shortcuts listed above.
Today’s beta release is just the first iteration of the Audit panel. In the coming months, we’ll be making steady updates about what audits are covered and how to perform these checks, including:
If you have feedback, issues to report, or questions about the Audit panel, let us know in the feedback thread on our forum.
Now you can see high-impact accessibility issues on your site with the new Audit panel in the Designer. Try it out in beta.
