This page outlines the accessibility decisions we have made in creating the site, as well as the known issues we have not yet been able to fix.
1. Visual design
We've designed the site with the following considerations in mind:
All text is a larger than standard text size to accommodate users of different needs, and users accross a range of devises.
Colours meet AA colour contrast standards
We have kept line length short to improve readability
Interactive elements like the navigation menu use underlines to indicate changes, rather than just a colour change.
All images on the website that are non-decorative use alternative image descriptions to describe their content for non-sighted users
The site has been built to work across breakpoints from large desktop screens to small and medium mobile device screen sizes.
3. Screen reader & keyboard navigation support
The site uses header tags to allow screen reader users to more easily navigate to different sections on the site.
For keyboard users, the site's elements are all keyboard focusable and are able to be accessed with the use of the keyboard only.
4. Known issues
There are several accessibility issues on the site that are primarily as a result of using Wix to build the site.
It is not currently possible to add a skip navigation link to the website
The navigation has some usability issues for keyboard users when they tab through the menu, where they must tab through extra items
The "Main" landmark on the site is currently not functional, however the navigation landmark and the content info landmark are currently in place
The DOM order for keyboard users is not always in the correct order, and on some pages, skips around near the end of pages
Buttons like "learn more" do not have descriptive ARIA labels
These issues are a result of using a beta version of the Wix site builder (Editor X) that has yet to add these features, but has many other advantages in terms of responsive design and greater usability.
