Product page

Status:

Does not pass​

  • 1.4.5 Images of text - Level AA

  • 1.1.1 Missing alt text - Level A

  • 1.2.8 Multimedia video - Level AAA

Summary of issues

  • Product page fails Non-text Content criterion by not providing text alternatives for non-text content, making it inaccessible for users with different sensory modalities and images with text are not embedded.

  • Multimedia Alternative criterion is not met as video-only content lacks alternative text descriptions, and image objects do not have brief descriptions of their function.

  • Product detail images contain too much information, making them difficult to read and inaccessible.

Redesign

Summary of changes

  • Redesigned carousel for accessibility by adding timing controls, clear control options, consistent height, semantic structure, and visible focus indicator.

  • Redesigned navigation menu with filled icons, icon text, increased color contrast, and added accessibility icon and visible focus indicator.

  • Removed animation and improved color contrast for "save" button, and added text description.

  • Made product detail images with no text alternatives accessible to screen readers by displaying text and adding description for multimedia videos.

  • Extracted essential text in HTML form, made "read before purchasing" more eye-catching.
