A case study describing the process of transforming complex, inaccessible forms into accessible forms.
We were recently tasked to take a client’s main site, along with multiple satellite sites, and bring them into WCAG 2.0 AA compliance. We looked at the structure of the client’s CMS and determined that we would remediate each component to make sure it follows best practices. The idea was that once everything was pieced back together, the accessibility of the site would improve drastically.
- Web forms are not inherently accessible.
- Creating a style guide for your site
- Testing and re-testing is an iterative process
