Standards

Accessible.org strives to conform to WCAG 2.1 AA standards to ensure digital offerings are fully accessible.

Compatibility

Accessible.org is compatible with most major Internet browsers including Chrome, FireFox, and Safari.

However, there is at least one ongoing browser-side issue with the use of Firefox and Safari on Mac with the Catalina update.  This affects tab and focus.

Per CodeGram.com:

In the end, it seems to be an issue related to Firefox and Mac since Catalina OS:

Firefox used to take the value from the user settings in System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts so just by checking the "Use keyboard navigation to move between controls" checkbox you could navigate using the keyboard. But that’s not working anymore.

Thankfully it has a quite easy solution:

  1. Go to about:config
  2. Search for accessibility.tabfocus and check that it’s set to type Boolean with value true
  3. Remove it and select Number instead 
  4. Click on the add button and then enter the value 7
  5. This should work.

Accessible.org may not perform optimally on Internet Explorer and older browser versions.

Testing

Accessible.org has been manually audited and scanned using automated software (WAVE and AXE) to ensure accessibility.

Training and Education

I have personally taken training administered by Karl Groves of Tenon.io and Jared Smith of WebAIM.org.  I have also undergone dozens of hours of informal training and education.  Rob Dodson’s YouTube channel has been particularly helpful.

Compliance

Through genuine effort and commitment including manual evaluations, consulting, and remediation, Accessible.org adheres to best practices for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
