A recent analysis of one million website home pages revealed 97.4% of the tested home pages showed detectable Web Content Accessibility Guideline (WCAG) failures those failures included things like missing alternative text for images and empty links (Institute for Disability Research, Policy, and Practice at Utah State University). This is true of commercial software as well and presents a major problem when it comes to accessibility in the workplace.

An impressive effort is unfolding across the United States to better promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in both the workplace and our communities. These initiatives are bringing about incredible change, but there is a vital component missing from many of these efforts: accessibility. Accessibility, both digital and physical, matters. And the risks associated with ignoring accessibility are growing every day. We can help mitigate those risks by providing JAWS scripting services to improve job accessibility.

What is jaws scripting?

Our scripting services transform the JAWS (Job Access With Speech) software for smooth sailing through commercial apps that would otherwise be considered in-accessible, smashing usability barriers. Our team can create scripts that help:

  • Label mislabeled or unlabeled controls so JAWS properly announces various available properties and functions
  • Provide custom keystrokes to access and activate controls that are not keyboard accessible through the software itself
  • Develop custom scripts that improve speed and efficiency navigating an application by addressing workflow needs within the system

It is a common practice to utilize PDF forms and documents to support and conduct business, but often these documents are released to employees and the general public without first verifying their accessibility. This can create barriers for employees and customers. Our team can support by testing documents to ensure accessibility compliance. When testing for the digital accessibility of a document, our team explores a variety of elements:

  • We consistently work to identify missing text alternatives for non-text content, or images with text that cannot be selected or read by assistive devices.
  • Testing is also done to identify any missing captions in time based or video media that may be imbedded in a PDF.
  • Adaptable content is another vital component that our team will help to evaluate, as content should never be limited to one form of interpretation.
  • The relationship between various pieces of content also matters. Headers (H1 and H2 tags) and content tags matter and can be used to create a hierarchy around how content is read by screen readers and other assistive devices. The order in which these items are presented matters a great deal for the user’s comprehension of on-page content. A meaningful sequence must be established to support the usability of a page or document.
  • Testing considers visual cues that cannot be interpreted by screen readers utilizing a sensory checklist and verifies content orientation which impacts the read order for screen readers dramatically.
  • Colors, fonts, and overall design can also impact a sites overall accessibility. Color contrast must be high and it is important to avoid using color only as a means of differentiating between multiple objects.
  • Titles matter, too. A document title is different from a file name, though there may be similarities in the context being provided. Titles should be used to clearly articulate to the user the purpose of a document or page.
  • Text images should be presented in a high-resolution format to ensure that the image maintains its integrity when increased by up to 200% in size.
  • Documents should also be designed in such a way that if a user has a need for resizing or reformatting text, they are able to do so.
  • All content in a document should be accessible using a keyboard and documents and webpages should avoid dynamic or pop-up content that may create what is referred to as a keyboard trap. All content must be controllable from a keyboard.
