Top 3 Issues:
- Contrast – The orange on white color combination used in links on hover does not provide sufficient contrast. The majority of issues with the site are related to contrast of content, links or informative images/icons.
- Name Role Value – Many elements are missing either a role or attributes to properly be identified as functional elements.
- Non Text Contrast – Several images related to search results or users are missing an alternative description, which is especially important when the images are linked.
