Hi, is GP WCAG 2.1 compatible?
Would you recommend a tool for checking how which part(s) of a website would need improvement against that standard?
Thanks.July 30, 2020 at 8:50 am #1382053TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
We do our best to keep accessibility in mind with everything we do. We have received and passed various accessibility reviews in the past. However, it’s likely time we get another one to make sure we’re still completely accessible.
I don’t know of any specific tools, but there are tons out there if you search for “WCAG 2.1 testing tools”.August 3, 2020 at 10:31 am #1386064Piotr
Ok, so I tried out Axe and did some preliminary tests. I corrected some issues.
Among the returned results, there are also the following:
Document has multiple elements referenced with ARIA with the same id attribute: mobile-menu
.mobile-header-navigation.has-branding.has-sticky-branding:nth-child(5) > .inside-navigation.grid-container.grid-parent > .main-nav
Document has multiple elements referenced with ARIA with the same id attribute: primary-menu
nav:nth-child(7) > .inside-navigation.grid-container.grid-parent > .main-nav
Document has multiple static elements with the same id attribute
.mobile-header-navigation.has-branding.has-sticky-branding:nth-child(5) > .inside-navigation.grid-container.grid-parent > .main-nav > .sf-menu.menu > .menu-item-596.menu-item-has-children.menu-item-type-custom > .sub-menu > .menu-item-426.menu-item-has-children.menu-item-type-custom > .sub-menu > .menu-item-226.menu-item-type-post_type.menu-item-object-page
Does the theme allow to correct them or we should rather wait for subsequent theme updates (will such issues be addressed at all)?August 3, 2020 at 10:35 am #1386073TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
I believe we’ve addressed a lot of this in GP Premium 1.11.0. Can you try the beta version?: https://generatepress.com/gp-premium-1-11-0-block-elements/August 4, 2020 at 8:29 am #1387115Piotr
Hi Tom, I installed it on my offline test website and I don’t see the originally quoted issues there. Thanks!August 4, 2020 at 9:18 am #1387166
