Collaborative Archive & Data Research Environment (CADRE)


This assessment covers portions of the CADRE platform. The assessment revealed moderate problems with screen reader compatibility, resulting in screen reader users sometimes missing critical information needed to understand content and operate features. 

Top 3 Issues:

  1. Contrast – The blue on white color combination used in links and buttons does not provide sufficient contrast. The majority of issues with the site are related to contrast.
  2. Fields and Labels – Many text fields are missing a programmatic association with a visible label. Also, for groups of related fields (like radio and checkbox) the visual group label is not programmatically associated.
  3. Name Role Value – A small amount of buttons and links are not semantically identified as interactive elements or are missing attributes to allow the elements to be accessible to AT users.
