An introduction to the Accessibility Category.
The Sitemorse Accessibility Assessment is divided into our standard format of 3 specific zones:
At the top is the Management Zone, which incorporates the summary KPI information as well as the Year at a Glance.
The Year at a Glance allows you to see how the accessibility results have changed over the last year. As you mouse over the bar you can see how the score has changed. You can click on the bar to view the assessment results from the displayed date.
The Report Zone is on the left and this summarises the assessment results and shows how the number of Priorities, Secondary and Tertiary actions have changed since the previous assessment.
The Action Zone is on the right, this includes the What to do next section where you can view the priority actions.
The priority actions are the most important actions to address - these will lead to the greatest improvement. You also have secondary and tertiary actions.
Also within the Action Zone, you can chose a more traditional report view showing the percentage of pages passing the Level A, AA and AAA tests.
The accessibility priority actions page shows all the issues that need to be addressed.
Many actions have a link to a short video explaining what needs to be done.
Actions have a simple description – in this case one aimed towards a Content Editor
The SMARTVIEW icons enable either the page to be viewed with the issue highlighted or to see the issue highlighted in the source code.
The secondary actions are targeted towards a more technical person and this view is laid out in a different format.
Here you can see there's an indication of the number of occurrences of each issue, the description and an icon allowing the action to be forwarded to another person.
