NOTE: This is not a comprehensive Audit!
This is an attempt to capture, with imprecise tools, the state of UNCG Web Accessibility.
The Web Accessibility Audit Instrument has three major components:
Record the URL of the webpage, the division it is maintained by and finally its type, or position, in the unit's hierarchy.
Remember: A Unit is a collection of related pages. Typically pages of a Units share a navigational devices (think "menus").
We have designated Four Types:
Determine the Markup Language Validity of the webpage using the 3WC Markup Validator, found at:
Enter the URL of the webpage being audited. Submit the form.
Record the DOCTYPE of the webpage, its validity status, and if not valid, the number of errors.
Determine the Accessibility of the webpage using the ATRC Web Accessibility Tester, found at:
NOTE: Be sure to Tester is using the appropriate Guidelines!
We are testing against two:
Enter the URL of the webpage being audited and submit the form.
Record the Status of the webpage (Conditional Pass or Failure) according to the standard,
and the number of errors, by type: Known, Likely and Potential.
Classify the errors. Change the report to sort the errors by Accessibility Guideline.
Look at the Table. You should see items label with letters of the Alphabet. For each, Choose the most significant problem type.
If 1 or more Known problems are reported, choose Known.
If no Known problems are reported, but 1 or more Likely problems are reported, choose Likely.
If no Known or Likely problems are reported, but 1 or more Potential problems are reported, choose Potential.
Finally, only if no problem is reported for the criteria, do not do anything.
