Most common accessibility issues
The web is not accessible. That’s not new, that’s not what I learned today. But the amount of accessibility errors did surprise me.
The WebAIM report states over 50 million errors in the top one million websites.
Today I learned that all of these errors are the most basic accessibility issue, you can fix so easy:
- low text contrast,
- missing alternative text,
- empty links and buttons,
- missing form labels and missing languages.
