A website Accessibility Audit was carried out for Classical Musicians Scotland. There were several areas which had to be improved to reach WCAG 2.1. AA.
The main accessibility issues were the following:
- Colour contrast issues especially on the Artist pages with white text over a light grey background. The light grey was darkened to meet WCAG 2.1 AA requirements.
- Alt descriptions were missing on the Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook footer linked images. These now have descriptive alternative text.
- Due to a fixed width design the text went off the screen when the browser was zoomed to 170%. Unable to fix this without a new template design.
The “One Click Accessibility” plugin was added to the site to add more helpful features.
The website will be upgraded to a fully mobile friendly responsive and accessible design in the coming years.
