You are testing the product.

Use tools

Use an accessibility toolbar for a first test. For example, the WAVE toolbar is available for Firefox and Chrome. The automated tests are not perfect but they give you a first impression of accessibility.

Take a look at the structure

Assess whether the general structure makes sense to you. Look at whether the headlines and the clickable elements are clearly identifiable. The headings bookmarklet also allows you to check whether the headings structure has the correct structure.
