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

Top 3 Issues:

  1. Name, Role, Value – Several controls on the site are only mouse accessible, and cannot be operated with a keyboard due to missing roles, programmatic names for the controls and required states.
  2. Keyboard – Several controls on the site are not keyboard accessible, due to the use of device-specific event listeners.
  3. Contrast – Several interactive controls, text and link text is low in contrast, both in default state and on hover/focus states.
