Viel Spaß beim Lesen.

Accessibility Blogparade: Ich wünsch mir was

Banner Accessibility Blogparade

Als ich die Einladung erhielt mich an der Accessibility Blog Parade zu beteiligen, war ich erst einmal wenig begeistert. Es wird so viel geschrieben zu diesen Thema. Vieles wiederholt sich, da wollte ich nicht auch noch einreihen.

Bis mir aber nach meinem Seminar in Zürich und einen spannenden Wochenende mit Eva Papst etwas klar wurde. Ich wünsche mir etwas für mich.

Joomla 1.5. Live Test Eva Papst 10: Media Manager

The Media - Manager isn’t easy to use, because of the duplication of the directories.
There are no headlines available.
The HTML - Code is a little bit confusing, because the are a fieldset and a legend found without any open form-element.

Joomla 1.5. Live Test Eva Papst 7: Backend general 2

Eva wants to change the template now.
It isn’t easy for her to find the right link in this mass of links, because we have no semantic headlines to structure the content.
But she is practised in using websites and so she found the right one after a while.

Conclusion: To change the template was possible

Joomla 1.5. Live Test Eva Papst 7: Backend general

Eva asked me:”What’s about the numbers I found at the beginning of the page.”
There is a link to the unread messages and the amount of logged in users is shown.

We can see the icons which are placed with CSS as background-images. These images aren’t accessible, because they are not part of the HTML.
It would be better to place them inside the code and use a accordant alternative text.

Joomla 1.5. Live Test Eva Papst 6: Extension Manager

Oh, everything in English.
Our work could be much easier, if we could use our native language.
We have to install the german language now.
So I sent Eva to look for the installation part. She found it.

Installation Manager looks fine.
Eva is happy about finding “real buttons” and a meta title .

Conclusion: Everything OK
