Current Issues & Workarounds

Jump to:


Duplicate id values in different views

Description

There are several instances of duplicate id values appearing in different views, which have the potential to create problems given the heavily scripted nature of OneCampus.

Affects

  • Screen reader & other assistive technology users

Remediation Status

Request submitted for vendor to remove duplicate id values submitted 

Aria attributes with invalid values

Description

Some ARIA attributes are set to have invalid values, for example having the initial empty ARIA attribute value: aria-expanded="" when valid values are "true" and "false."

Affects

  • Screen reader & other assistive technology users
  • Browser extension users

Remediation Status

Request for submitted for vendor to add valid aria attribute values submitted 

Certain pages lacking H1

Description

Some views lack an H1. An H1 tag helps users identify the subject of a given page.

Affects

  • Sighted users
  • Screen reader & other assistive technology users
  • Keyboard users
  • Browser extension users

Workaround

Use additional context (previous page, other headings, links) to identify the purpose of the page.

Remediation Status

Request submitted for vendor to add h1 to all pages submitted 

Focus goes to the search field on page load

Description

On some browsers/devices, focus immediately goes to the search bar within the header on page load. Screen reader users may miss navigation elements earlier in the tab order.

Affects

  • Screen reader users
  • Chrome users
  • Firefox users on a Mac

Workaround

Screen reader users can tab back to navigate the main menu.

Remediation Status

Currently investigating local and/or vendor solutions.

Font icons are not hidden from screen readers

Description

Screen readers will read off the font icons.

Affects

  • Screen reader users

Workaround

Very few users will encounter this minor annoyance. Disregard font icons that are read aloud (e.g., '\ea8f').

Remediation Status

Added aria-hidden=”true” to configurable icons. Request submitted for vendor to add aria-hidden=”true” to non-configurable font icons.

Controls to move between announcements is not keyboard accessible

Description

Keyboard users will not be able to navigate between announcements. Controls are links without href attribute so they are not really links.

Affects

  • Keyboard users

Workaround

Select “View All” to display all the announcements in the Announcements Section.

Remediation Status

We've updated the website to display two announcements on desktop to minimize the need for the announcement controls. Additionally, a request was submitted for vendor to add href= ”” to announcement controls (or otherwise make them accessible) 

 

Recently Remediated

Poor focus indicators for “Favorite” and “Remove Favorite” buttons

Description

Some buttons (including the “Favorite” star button and the “Remove Favorite” button) do not have sufficiently visible keyboard focus indicators.

Affects

  • Low vision users
  • Keyboard users

Remediation Status

Updated custom style sheet to provide more prominent focus on these elements.
