Accessibility problems

  • The crop functionality on the profile and cover photo upload is not keyboard accessible. This fails WCAG 2.2 Success Criterion 1.1.1 Non-text Content. Users can contact the Community manager at community.manager@campaigntoendloneliness.org.uk for support with cropping profile and cover photos.
  • Your profile information is presented in a layout table. Screen readers may interpret this as a data table, and announce column and row numbers. This fails WCAG 2.2: Tables are used for tabular data and data cells are associated with their headers. Data table captions, if present, are associated to data tables. 
  • If you are using assistive technologies, there is a hidden input field that is not flagged as empty in the ‘Invite’ Section of the ‘Create a Group’ option in Groups. This fails WCAG 2.2: Success Criterion 4.1.2 We plan to implement ARIA labelling to tell user with assistive technology it is empty.
We are working to fix the content which fails to meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard. We will update this statement when these issues are fixed.
