JoVE Science Education


This assessment covers portions of the Jove Science Education 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. Additionally, several links are missing an href attribute, resulting in them being missed by Assistive Technology.
  2. Contrast – Several interactive controls, text and link text is low in contrast.
  3. Images – All ‘results’ images are linked as a part of the result set but the images and the links are missing a label or alternative description.
