Google Scholar


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

Top 3 Issues:

  1. Name Role Value – The role, required attributes or accessible name for interactive elements is missing or incorrect in some key functions. This would cause some hardships to users who want to leverage these functions.
  2. Contrast – Some text is slightly low in contrast, which would potentially cause low vision users to either miss or have difficulty to perceive the affected content.
  3. Semantics – Some semantics are either inappropriately used or missing, which causes users of accessible technology to not benefit from the same structuring of data that other users would be able to benefit from.
