Find out what is causing your website's WCAG 2.1 issues discovered by the detailed automated WCAG 2.1 scan and how you can fix them
The WCAG 2.1 AA Remediation Report is an automated analysis that not only identifies WCAG 2.1 A/AA issues, but also provides you with detailed recommendation as to how to fix them. Your public-facing website will be scanned and tested using the following WCAG 2.1 principles:
- Principle 1: Perceivable Information and user interface components must be presented to users in ways they can perceive. This means that users must be able to comprehend the information being depicted.
- Principle 2: Operable User interface components and navigation must be operable. The interface cannot require interaction that a user cannot perform.
- Principle 3: Understandable Users must be able to understand the information as well as the operation of the user interface.
- Principle 4: Robust Content must be robust enough that it can be interpreted reliably by a wide variety of user agents, including assistive technologies. As technologies and user agents evolve, the content should remain accessible.
Specific issues discovered under each of the guidelines are detailed with an explanation as to why it's considered noncompliant and includes suggestions for techniques as to how to fix them. To help your team easily find each infraction within the website, we include the links to the exact URL on which it was found as well as provide snippets of the code in question and screenshots of the issue when applicable.
