Content and functionalities that are not yet accessible


Errors in style sheet definitions

Some of the content in css files is not read by some screen readers, adn not available to people who turn off style sheets. (WCAG 1.3.1)

Elements contain duplicate attributes

The same id is used on more than one element.  (WCAG 4.1.1)

No accessible name for an image

Link name is missing in some elements, therefore screen readers read URL instead. (WCAG 2.4.4, 2.4.9 and 4.1.2)

Appropriate markup is missing in text presentation to convey information

Resizing text

Zooming is disabled for some elements. (WCAG 1.4.4)

Contrast issues in the content

The CSS outline or border style on some  element makes it difficult or impossible to see the dotted link focus outline. (WCAG 2.4.7)
