Although building accessible applications can help more than automated tools such as this plugin, it does help ensure that common a11y violations are caught before they reach the user.

The best part of this plugin is that it allows you to conditionally close part or the entire violation report so that you don’t have to feel overwhelmed when adding it to an existing application.
