We would like to see accessibility enhancements made to the current AGOL crowdsource reporter template.
Rationale: In Ontario, there is Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). It uses WCAG 2.0 Level A and Level AA as the basis for web content, which includes interactive mapping. The Ontario government follows this very strictly and web apps are not able to release publicly if not proven they are AODA compliant.
Below are some potential areas for improvements in the crowdsource reporter template that are identified under WCAG requirements:
1.1.1 Non-Text Content (Criteria: All non-text content that is presented to the user has a text alternative) -
2.1.1 Keyboard (Criteria: All functionality of the content is operable through a keyboard interface without requiring specific timings for individual keystrokes) -
2.4.3 Focus Order, 3.1.1 & 3.1.2 Language, 3.3.1 Error Identification
Improving the accessibility of this application is in our dev plans for 2018.
Excellent! Great to hear, Allison. If you need testers on this enhancement, we are happy to get involved. Thx.
