This assessment covers portions of the NetAdvantage platform. The assessment revealed major problems with screen reader compatibility, resulting in screen reader users often missing critical information needed to understand content and operate features.
Top 3 Issues:
- Keyboard – Many functions of the system are implemented as mouse-specific functions. Therefore, the functions and some content is completely unavailable to keyboard users.
- Name Role Value – Many buttons, links and interactive functions are not semantically identified as the elements/functions that they behave like. Also, several elements do not programmatically communicate information that is visually communicated.
- Images – Several images are either missing an alternate description or inappropriately use an empty alternative description, which inappropriately renders the important image as decorative. In some cases, the images (like graphs) communicate information vital to the system but this information is not available in an alternate method.
