Commitment to Accessibility

As someone who provides training to web designers and developers on website accessibility and provides accessibility services through my client-based business, I need to practice what I preach. I am committed to making this website accessible and in compliance with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA and good usability practices.

Steps Taken

  • I created a custom theme myself that is more accessible than the one previously used on the site. I notified the developers of that theme about some of the issues I found.
  • I periodically check the site for accessibility issues and correct them as I find them.
  • I manually code forms on the site to make them accessible. I have also alerted MailerLite about this issue and asked that they add labels to fields on all of the forms they create for use on customers’ websites.
  • I have added explanatory text to hyperlinks specifically for screen readers.
  • Hyperlinks to external sites do not open in a new tab or window.
  • Explanatory text for screen readers has been added to hyperlinks to ensure clarity where there are links with the same text on a page.
  • I’ve added captions to video.
  • I’ve provided transcripts for audio.
  • I’ve added ARIA for clarity on some HTML elements.
  • I’ve modified the social media share buttons plugin files to remove titles on their links.

Known Issues

I will update this list as I find issues that I do not immediately fix.

  • The dropdown navigation menu cannot be bypassed. I am working to correct this.
  • I am working on fixing the menu dropdown on mobile.
  • I am checking that essential images have appropriate Alt-text and that decorative ones have null Alt-text.
  • The popup form is displayed in an iframe, and I cannot override the heading size, and it doesn’t not use labels properly, which I cannot control. I have asked MailerLite to add labels to their forms.

Testing

I perform periodic ongoing manual accessibility tests and testing with assistive technology.
