Accessibility Problems and Recommended Solutions
Type of site radio buttons on search form
Radio buttons do not have any legend. What does "Any" radio button not selected mean?
Convert "Type of Site" from a heading into a fieldset legend
After submitting search results
JAWS announces it was in forms mode (because of the login fields).
Set focus inside of the Site Browser tool on the "Results" heading so the screen-reader user knows the search results are present.
Page title after submitting page results
Page title does not inform the user that they are on the search results page
Append "Search Results" on the end of the page title.
List object navigation buttons
Buttons are only punctuation.
Need to be "next" and "Previous" instead of < and >
Search results table summary
Table summary doesn't describe what is found in the table.
Mary and Brian will devise a new table summary.
Search link in action bar
Meaning isn't intuitive
Consider making it "Back to search form" link. Or put such a link under the search results.
List navigator controls aren't repeated at the end of the results table.
Repeat controls at end of table.
No Sites meet the search criteria text
Doesn't include the search criteria for error detection. Can't tell if the search info was entered incorrectly or that there really aren't any matching results.
