Disclaimer & Limits
Our web accessibility partner, accessiBe handles all aspects of the accessibility legislation (AA level), and all subjects and guidelines called WCAG 2.0, on behalf of the World Wide Web Consortium, W3. However, the system has some technological limitations, all of which are currently being addressed. Some will be resolved soon and some will be resolved later as the technology matures.
Here is a list of technological limitations in the web accessibility system:
- The web accessibility system does not create subtitles for videos and does not make Word documents or PDF files on the site accessible. It only applies accessibility to the site itself.
- The web accessibility system does not edit or modify the accessibility adjustments already performed on the site since it takes into account that if some accessibility actions were performed, there is a reason for that. For example: if you have created image descriptions (ALT), the system will not override them. Therefore, if you have applied accessibility adjustments, and made mistakes, in some cases, the system will not correct your mistakes. Additionally, it is important to make sure it if you apply accessibility adjustments yourself or using an additional tool, it doesn’t collide with ours and doesn’t override ours.
- The web accessibility system is a Machine Learning based technology. This means that in order to be accurate, it has to encounter a component many times on several different websites. The more it encounters a component, the better it can make it accessible. For example, the system will almost certainly fix your menus, dropdowns, pop-ups, forms, buttons, lists, galleries, and more, as those components exist in almost any website. But, if your website contains very specific components like a unique quiz, test, ticketing feature, parallax effects or games, that don’t commonly exist on other websites that are using the system, it might not be able to make it accessible and you’ll need to make accessibility remediations manually.
