Limitations and Alternatives
Despite our best efforts to ensure accessibility of Ambrosia Key West website, there may be some limitations. Our website is built using the content management system, WordPress. Plugins are third-party developed tools and we do not have the capability to have these fixed. We have reached out to the third-party developer and have made them aware of the ADA non-compliance issue.
Below is a description of known limitations, and potential solutions. Please contact us if you observe an issue not listed.
- Non-text Content
Images on pages are missing alt text.
- 1.3.1 Info and Relationships
Carousels need to have previous, next, play, and pause buttons. Please see https://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/tutorials/sliders/controls/ for sample implementation.
The email address and zip code fields need labels. An example of how to implement this code is located at https://www.w3.org/WAI/tutorials/forms/labels/.
The user hears email star but does not know what the star means. The value should be changed to required, so that the user knows that the field is required.”
- 1.3.2 Meaningful Sequence
The privacy/terms ReCAPTCHA is read after the newsletter form but before the Find Us. This information should either be read before the footer or should be placed below the form.
- 1.3.5 Identify Input Purpose
The email and zipcode fields should use the HTML 5.2 autocomplete attributes. An example is shown at https://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG21/Techniques/html/H98
- 1.4.5 Images of Text (Level AA)
The bullets are set as images and will be pulled out by the screen reader as images if a non-sighted user uses a certain set of key strokes. These images should be replaced with bullets that are styled using CSS.
- 1.4.13 Content on Hover or Focus
Images get focus when a user navigates to them via keyboard or screen reader. However, there is no way to use the escape key to go back to the main content.
- 2.4.4 Link Purpose (In Context)
User listening on screen reader hear https://www.ambrosiakeywest.com slash number for the carousels. These items should either be links to other pages on the site or should not have links associated with them.
- 2.4.7 Focus Visible
The slideshow area and button to scroll back up to the page are not visible when tabbed over. Ensure that CSS is applied to these elements to make the focus visible.
None of the navigation, images, or form fields are focus visible. Ensure that CSS is applied to these elements, so those using their keyboard do not have to look in the status toolbar to determine what piece of content is active.
- 3.3.1 Error Identification
If a user does not fill in the fields as expected or makes an error, they get a popup box noting the errors. However, the default is that the OK button is hightlighted, so a non-sighted user does not know where the errors are. The alert box should read from the top of the box down when the focus is on the popup.
We have been made aware and we are currently in the process of modifying our site to address the above limitations to make our site accessible. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call Teresa Pazara 305-296-9838- if you encounter an issue.
