Technical information about this website’s accessibility
This website has been checked for compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.1 AA standard. The following items describe some compliance limitations which we will work to resolve as resources become available.
Non-accessible content with the accessibility regulations
Non-accessible images. The image icons used within the boxes in the landing page are not alt-text described, which does not comply with WCAG success criterion 1.4.5 images of text. This limitation is due to the location and use for these images, which is not to deliver content but to illustrate the text in the boxes.
In future, registration of a study will include a feature to add content related to the study (e.g., an image of a poster or an abstract for a publication). This content will be hosted on our website but are not produced by the RoR team and won’t be editable. Such content may include images or text that may not comply with WCAG standards.
The Flesch Kincaid Reading Ease test on the content in the Home page, About us and Contact us tabs was 31.7% These results indicate a readability level of college or university (25 average words per sentence and 167 syllables per 100 words).
Steps being taken to ensure accessibility of the website
- We will continue to generate content using html.
- We will encourage members of the RoR registry/hub to upload documents that meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines requirements.
- We will revise the text to simplify sentences and decrease the use of the passive voice.
