Review of Grazr

Grazr Reviewed 10 Aug 2009 · Average score 73%


There are aspects of this site that cannot be used with a keyboard and making widgets etc means that an overlay appears over the main page and it does not have the focus. Dynamic updates are not necessarily caught by the screen reader. All parts of the site can be zoomed and on the whole the main text is readable with once again small menu buttons and instructions in places.
