Consisting of 13 guidelines that are organized under 4 principles: perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust. All the guidelines have testable success criteria’s, organized in three levels: A, AA, and AAA.

The non-compliances and known issues are listed below in this report.

Common issues

There are HTML errors that makes the website look different in different browsers. This can be corrected by validating a specification. This makes the interpretation of the content on the website more correct and consistent

Headlines and subheadlines skip levels, which is impacting the structure on the website. This makes it harder for users with assistive technologies.

Issues for users with low vision

There is no navigation link that allows the user to skip to the main content on the website. By creating a link at the top of every page makes it easier to navigate – especially for users using assistive technologies.

A few pictures do not have an alt text. Users with assistive technologies might not understand the reason behind the link, or that it’s there.

In order to identify a link with a screen reader the links must include regular text or alt text. Or in the case with a linked picture there is a need to insert an alt text that shows where the link goes.

Some text on the website has a low contrast ratio. In other words, the text whose brightness is too close to the background brightness – making the text harder to read.

Navigation issues

It is not possible to the filters that exists with the search function by using the keyboard.

Several interactive elements do not have focus styles. Because of this it is not able to see if you have navigated to a button by using the keyboard. An example on this is the button “all ideas”, on a site about a single idea.

The hamburger menu on mobile does not have focus styles, and neither the search box. Even if you can see the cursor in the box it is not sufficient from an accessibility standpoint.

How we tested the website

We have performed a self-assessment test and used several automatic tools to identify accessibility issues. We perform manual tests on a regular basis to enhance and improve the accessibility for all users. was published on the 12:th of November 2020.
