Testing & Remediation

How to test: Open your website in a browser of your choice and begin navigating to look for places where user input is necessary. For any component (eg. forms), confirm that there is help text when the label isn't sufficient enough to describe all the functionality. How to remediate: If a form requires text input
  • Provide a help link on each page
  • Provide help by an assistant in the web page
  • Provide spell checking & suggestions for text input
  • Provide text instructions at the beginning of a form or set of fields that describes the necessary input
For a form that requires text input in an expected data format

Questions and Answers

How do I know if my websites structure is layed out correctly?

Your site should have the correct semantic elements (header, main, footer, article, etc) in the order that they are intended to be read. This means that sometimes this isn't the order that makes styling the page the easiest. You must also ensure that all your heading levels are hit in the order. This means that you should not skip from an h1 to an h4, and so on.

How long does the accessibliity process take?

This question depends on a number of factors including size of site, desired level of conformance, your developer's understanding of accessibility techniques, etc. Accessible Web is here to help. Reach out and we can discuss your site specifically.
