Hello Web Authors and Content Owners,
One of the common mistakes we are seeing as we comb through the site is this: Text is being placed inside image files as opposed to using Cascade’s text fields. This is a problem for a number of reasons:
- If alt tags are not properly applied to your picture, this could result in a failure to comply with ADA web standards. It is critical that we are ADA compliant.
- It is important that the site remains as consistant as possible throughout all 3,000 pages. This is important to the user’s experience, and from a branding perspective. The site’s design is altered when:
- Foreign and un-approved fonts are utilized
- Foreign and un-approved colors are utilized.
Thanks again for all of your hard work. If we stick together on these important issues, we will have a cohesive, well designed site, ADA compliant website.
