This high-level assessment covers limited portions and functionality of the EBSCOhost Platform. The assessment revealed issues with assistive technology compatibility, resulting in some users missing information required to perceive and understand content, and to operate functions. It is important to keep in mind that the findings represent a high-level assessment, and do not reflect the results of a Deque Comprehensive Web Assessment.

Top 3 Issues

  1. ARIA – Many elements make use of ARIA attributes where there is no valid role. This approach causes inconsistencies in support amongst Assistive Technology.
  2. Contrast – A handful of key controls and icon controls are low in contrast, making them difficult to perceive.
  3. Labels – The search inputs found on all pages are missing visible labels.
