Accessibility Testing Results
The output from this wiki is good but sadly the editor used does not allow for keyboard access and is not screen reader accessible. A text browser does not even show a link for editing the main area. However for text to speech applications access is good and colours can be changed along with font sizes and types.
|1||Login, Signup and Other Forms Accessible||Forms lacked labels although some screen readers would be able to access the text boxes as they were in the correct order.|
|2||Image ALT Attributes||Many images are CSS backgrounds with supporting texts which means there are no problems in text browser and the screen reader will not even be aware of the images used.|
|3||Link Target Definitions||There were no problems with links|
|4||Frame Titles and Layout||No frames in place.|
|5||Removal of Stylesheet||Problems exist because the site uses a table layout|
|6||Audio/Video Features||This depends on the use of embedded YouTube video player and use of alt tags with added graphics etc|
|7||Video/animations - audio descriptions||This depends on the use of embedded YouTube video player and use of audio descriptions within the original videos.|
|8||Appropriate use of Tables||Tables are used for layout which is detrimental to linear navigation|
|9||Tab Orderings Correct and Logical||Tab order goes through the tables from top down and then across the page|
|10||Page Functionality with Keyboard||Keyboard access was possible until you had to use the rich text editor when there was no way to reach the menus|
|12||Appropriate Feedback with Forms||The feedback was not helpful as it appeared in one sentence with a long list of possible errors|
|13||Contrast and Colour Check||There were no problems with the standard colours|
|14||Page Integrity when Zooming||Zooming was good on the basic site|
|15||Text size, style, blinking elements and Readability||This was good on the main site but some of the help files or tips were rather faint and small.|
