Areas for Improvement and Timelines
I am aware of some areas on the website where I could improve accessibility. I am currently working to achieve this. I hope that this website will achieve Level AA conformance to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 by December 31, 2021. Please see below for a table that documents my current areas for improvement, along with descriptions of the features I have added to remediate these problems.
|Website Section||Improvement Needed||Timeline for Improvement||Completion Date and Notes||Alternative Access|
|image alt attributes||accurate descriptions of images are needed||completion by December 31, 2021||in progress||email Meagan@eatsomethingdelicious.com for assistance|
|keyboard navigation||all elements on the screen need to be accessible using a keyboard only||completion by December 31, 2021||Most items are accessible but a few are not. This is my highest priority at the moment.||The use of an ad blocker may resolve some of the issues. Email Meagan@eatsomethingdelicious.com for assistance.|
|color contrast||adjust colors to pass WCAG level AA contrast requirements||completion by December 31, 2021||Most non-image colors pass level AA contrast requirements but a few still need adjusted.||email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance|
|form labels||fill in missing form labels||completion by December 31, 2021||Most form labels present. Only known issues are on recipe ratings||email Meagan@eatsomethingdelicious.com for assistance|
I am doing my best to create an inclusive website that is accessible to everyone. That being said, there is always a chance I could miss something so feedback is greatly appreciated.
