Change the text color to provide sufficient contrast.

Critical

SAK-20474

Resizable Text

OK - Works great all the way up to maximum page zoom. Doubling the font size is fine.

 

-

 

Semantics

OK - No tables used for layout - Great!
Data table that presents the search results / site list is well coded. Might not need the table summary, but is OK.

 

-

 

Keyboard Operatibility

OK - All controls behave as expected.

 

-

 

Time Limits

Fail - The form will time out and not notify the user or reset the page. Clicking on the Search for Sites button or the search link after that returns the user to the welcome tool instead of the search form or search results.

Is this a portal issue?

Critical

 

Control of Updates

OK - No auto updates made

 

-

 

Prevent Seizures

OK - No Flashing Content Present

 

-

 

Bypass Blocks - Headings

OK - Headings are used to mark structural areas and heading levels are appropriate

 

-

 

Bypass Blocks - Skip Content Links

OK - Skip to content links work as appropriate

 

-

 

Bypass Blocks - Group Links

OK - No groups of links found

 

-

 

Bypass Blocks - Frame / Page Titles

OK - Only frame found is the tool container and it is labeled with the tool's name

 

-

 

Page Titles

OK - Includes gateway (since we are not logged in) and tool name

 

-

 

Focus

FAIL - Focus indicator outline color changes between controls (inconsistent). In FF on OS X, the buttons are outlined in blue while the text inputs are outlined in black.

 

Minor

 

Focus

FAIL - Could tab to the academic term select menu even when the course radio button is not selected. Setting / changing the academic term select menu's value does not automatically set the course radio button.

 

Critical

SAK-21804 - Getting issue details... STATUS

Links

FAIL - Help for Site Browser link does not take the user to a page containing help on the site browser.

 

Major

SAK-21676

Headings

FAIL - On the search form page, the Type of site headings (level 4) should instead be a legend for the radio control buttons. No comparable heading level 4 differentiates the rest of the form that doesn't relate to the site type. This will mislead low-vision / blind users as to the purpose of some page content.

 

Critical

SAK-21797

Headings

OK - Search results page headings are fine.

 

-

 

Labels

FAIL - The radio buttons on the search form are not grouped in a fieldset with an appropriate legend (i.e. "Radio button 'any' no selected" does not make sense out of context).

 

Critical

SAK-21797

Labels

FAIL - The next / previous buttons on the item pager above the search results table only have ASCII art in them. The "<" and ">" symbols will not be read by many screen-reader software programs based on typical user settings (to not read punctuation). Also, less than and greater than symbols don't automatically translate to previous and next to a person who has never seen the symbols before.

 

Critical

SAK-21677

Language Identification

OK - The tool's iframe html element sets the default page's human language to English

 

-

 

Change of Context

FAIL - The tool's help link opens the help system in a new window without notifying the user first.

This is most likely a portal issue.

Critical

SAK-21270

Consistency

FAIL - The tool's title bar does not have a tool reset feature. If the considerably simpler tools like "About" and "Features" have a reset icon, why not this tool?

 

Critical

SAK-21801

Consistency

FAIL - Tool's action bar is missing on the search form. Other tools display the action bar even when it is empty of options.

 

Major

 

Consistency

FAIL - Text input elements in the form have a light gray background when similar text input elements in other tools do not. (Gray background noted using FF 5.0 on Windows 7. Same text input has white background in FF 6.0.2 on OS X)

 

Critical

 

Access keys

OK - Consistent use of access keys. Accesskeys work as expected.

 

-

 

Change of Context Notification

FAIL - Help links don't warn user that the help system opens in a new window.

This is most likely a portal issue.

Critical

SAK-21270

Error Notices

OK - No error notices could be generated

 

-

 

Required Field Notification

OK - No required fields were discovered

 

-

 

Error Prevention

FAIL - When a search has no results, the search criteria are not repeated as they are when there are results. This prevents users from checking the search terms to see if they made a mistake in entering them.

 

Critical

SAK-21802

Error Prevention

FAIL - There is no way for a user to return to the search terms they used previously and modify them.

 

Critical

SAK-21803

Error Prevention

FAIL - Setting the academic term does not automatically set the "Course" radio button. The Academic term select menu is not disabled / enabled with the unchecked / checked state of the "Course" radio button.

 

Critical

SAK-21804

Help

FAIL - No tool specific help is available despite the presence of a "Help for Site Browser" link.

 

Major

SAK-21676

Validation

FAIL - Code is not well formed. XHTML Document Types must have explicitly closed elements / tags. The meta and link tags in the head section are not closed. The input elements in the form are not closed.

At least as reported by Firebug...

Minor
