Liverpool University Press


This high-level assessment covers limited portions and functionality of the Liverpool University Press 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. Contrast of Text – Problems with contrast of text in default, hover and focus states results in some low vision users potentially not being able to perceive affected text-based content on the site.
  2. Non Text Contrast – Contrast of focus indicators and of form controls is required by low vision users in order to accurately identify controls and content so that they can independently operate the controls and understand content.
  3. Roles – When working with search results, some filter functionality is missing a semantic role which prevents users of Assistive Technology from being able to easily identify and operate the filter functions.
