Alexander Street

Summary

This assessment covers portions of the Alexander Street Platform. The assessment revealed moderate
problems with screen reader compatibility, resulting in screen reader users missing important
information needed to understand content and operate features.

Top 3 Issues:

  1. Focus Indicator – Moderate issues exist with focus indicators. A focus indicator is vital to allow low-vision or sighted screen reader users to easily and clearly identify the content that is currently in focus.
  2. Link Purpose – Primarily found on search results, links that do not clearly indicate their purpose or provide additional context must have additional context provided, so a user can easily identify the unique purpose for similarly-named links.
  3. Info and Relationships – Found on search results, content that misuses aria-hidden results in the content being completely ignored by assistive technology.
