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.
