Accessibility Testing Results
The sign-in to create a website involves a Captcha, but the general log in to Google services is accessible with a keyboard although it is missing labels to help the NVDA screen reader user unless they are using Webbie. The webpage template layout is easy to follow and keyboard access is possible but then mouse use is needed for setting areas on the web pages. Forms do not appear to be labelled but can be seen in WebbIE. Text sizes and levels of contrast are good and this can be continued if the correct website templates are chosen.
|1||Login, Signup and Other Forms Accessible||The standard Google signup form is missing some labels. The form for creating a site has a recaptcha with poor audio option.|
|2||Image ALT Attributes||Very few critical images have alternative text.|
|3||Link Target Definitions||All links, including images which would otherwise be ambiguous, have titles to uniquely identify them.|
|4||Frame Titles and Layout||No frames or iframes, which can be disorientating for screen-readers, are used in the design.|
|5||Removal of Stylesheet||This site is unusable without a stylesheet.|
|6||Audio/Video Features||Websites made with this service make it possible to up load videos from Google and to supply text transcriptions or captioning as part of the video. Any alt attributes have to be added via HTML rather than the editing template.|
|7||Video/animations - audio descriptions||Websites made with this service would make it possible to add video/audio files for audio descriptions. Text descriptions can be added within the content.|
|8||Appropriate use of Tables||Tables are not used for the design of this website.|
|9||Tab Orderings Correct and Logical||Tab order is in a logical and consistent top-to-bottom or left-to-right format.|

|11||Accessibility of Text Editors||Parts of the web page editor are not accessible with the screenreader or keyboard.|
|12||Appropriate Feedback with Forms||The product provides suitable feedback when the user performs an action.|
|13||Contrast and Colour Check||No contrast issues.|
|14||Page Integrity when Zooming||The website maintains the layout and usability of all critical areas perfectly when zoomed.|
|15||Text size, style, blinking elements and Readability||The majority of text on the site is size ten, which is readable but may be uncomfortable for some.|
