Art Song Transpositions


This report reflects the findings of a high-level assessment of the Art Song Transpositions
Platform for its conformance with the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1
(WCAG 2.1).

There are several WCAG 2.1 AA compliance issues with the Art Song Transpositions platform
and some of them are major issues that will significantly impact users with accessibility needs.
For remediation it will be important to carefully review the WCAG 2.1 AA web standards. Below
are the most critical issues to address to improve system compliance.

Top 3 Issues

  1. Keyboard Navigation: Currently there is no focus state for any of the interactive elements
    on the page. This is a serious issue and makes the website almost impossible to navigate
    for visually impaired users and users with decreased motor functions that require the use
    of a keyboard to navigate the web. This correction should be a priority. Additionally, there
    are no skip links at the top of the page to allow the users to bypass repeated content on
    the page to get to the main content. This is a level A requirement and needs to be
  2. Zooming and Scaling: This is a major accessibility necessity, especially for users that have
    visual impairments. Disabling this function makes it extremely difficult for a visually
    impaired user to navigate the site and needs to be enabled.
  3. Color Contrast: There are several contrast issues across the site that do not meet
    contrast requirements. (1) Many of the form fields are a light gray, (2) site’s primary
    yellow is too light against white. Additionally, there is one link that persists across the
    site that does not meet contrast with the background or the surrounding text and does
    not have a text decoration, so it will blend in for users with visual impairments.
