Testing & Remediation
- How to test:Since this is a multi-part success criterion, you much test each of the parts individually.
- Foreground & background colors - can a user change the foreground & background colors?
- Are blocks of text 80 characters wide or less?
- Is any of the text on the site set to be not justified?
- Is your line spacing (leading, in css: line-height) at least a space and a half within paragraphs, and the distance between paragraphs is at least 1.5 times larger than line spacing?
- Can the text be resized without assistive technology up to 200% not causing horizontal scroll-bar (i.e.: presence of a font-resizing mechanic, usually within the header or article)?
Questions and Answers
I like the look of smaller text on the web. And even if the text is pretty normal size, some subheadings or small bits of info look nice if they are much smaller (thinking 12px or so). Is there a minimum font size that is...
I noticed that you guys have a text re-sizer on your site. Why not just allow the user to use the browser zoom? Is one better than the other?
Is there a way that I can test the color contrast of text and graphics?
My site contains alot of artwork, graphics, and some photography. My question is whether or not I need to do anything if they don't meet requirements. Or do they get a pass?
The company colors don't pass contrast guidelines, and the entire site is built on that color scheme. Are there any exceptions to this rule, and if so, what would you suggest?
Do logos need to follow the accessibility guidelines? Specifically color contrast, size, text, stuff like that.
If I have a gif on a site that loops continuously. Is that okay or does it violated the 'can't have repeating flashing stuff' rule?
