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

Top 3 Issues:

  1. Contrast – The light blue on white color combination used in links does not provide sufficient contrast. The majority of issues with the site are related to contrast of content, links or informative images/icons.
  2. Labels – Many elements are missing either a programmatic label, a visible label or both which causes screen reader users to have great difficulty in completing these forms.
  3. Non Text Contrast – Several informative images are low in contrast, which would lead to low vision users possibly missing this content completely.
