Scope Definitions - Overview

Testing every element on every page of a website is not necessarily the most efficient way to analyze a site. On many websites, there are elements that are consistent through all of or many of the pages on the site; therefore, it is quite common to receive the same error multiple times for one element. One way to avoid this using FireEyes is via the scope definition feature. The scope definition feature of FireEyes enables you to include or exclude segments of your web pages in the accessibility analysis.

For example, portions of a webpage can be defined as "header", "footer", "navigation", "search", "main content", "side bar" and so on. Analysis can be run to include only the "main content" area. Or analysis can be run to exclude the "header", "footer", "navigation", and "search" areas. Many combinations are possible.
