The "For" column header in the Announcements table on the Announcements main page does not make sense
The "for" column header title should be changed so the purpose of the column is understood by all users.
The Announcements table summary on the announcements main page is out of dated with incorrect information
Update the table summary to accurately describe the table
The remove announcement checkboxes in the announcements table on the announcements main pageare all labeled as, "Select to Remove"
Each checkbox should have a unique and descriptive label.
Multiple radio button and checkbox groups (Access, Availability and Specific Dates) on the Post Announcement page do not make sense out of context
Fieldsets and legends should be added to these form control groups so they make sense out of context
The Availability radio buttons on the Post Announcement page are missing important information in their label that is available to sighted users.
Add the extra text to the label element so it cam be accessed by adaptive technology
Numerous combo boxes used for the Specify Dates Availability options when posting a new announcement are unlabeled
All form controls should be labeled
If the Availability options Specify Dates option is chosen, but dates are not chosen and the new announcement is submitted the form errors out, but the Availability option radio buttons reset themselves
The chosen options should be saved and there should be a way to move from the error message to the form control where the error occurs
When adding or editing and announcement and selecting a radio button choice for either the Access or Availability options, on input the focus changes and disorients the user.
The focus should not change on input, It should only change because the user requests the focus change or the form is submitted.
The table summary for the revision history that is present when editing an announcement and selecting the revision history link is not needed because the table is not complex enough to need a table summary
The table summary can be removed.
On the Announcements Options page, the "Display Options" radio buttons do not make sense out of context.
A fieldset and legend are needed so that the radio buttons make sense out of context.
