[Blindmath] Fwd: Evaluating web pages for accessibility

The accessibility errors from the Javascript and the Event handler you have on the page. The event handler error comes from the Link of your recently viewed articles on the left part of the page. I tested this with Jaws and it works correctly, no programming or accessibility issues on my end. You have a couple of more event triggers throughout the page such as the explanation links and the download options you have down the page. 

Although there is nothing wrong with the code you will get a warning because of the Javascript within the page. The only navigation problems I had were with your top right toolbar that handles add to favorites, add to lens, reuse/edit, download.. etc those were not accessible to me it would jump from add to favorites to your Facebook like button. I don't think this should matter since the content is accessible. 


Hope that helps, I couldn't find any problems or issues with

Now I need some help interpreting the results. I ran the WAVE on the following web page:

http://cnx.org/content/m45284/latest/

The first line on the output says: "Uh oh! WAVE has detected 8 accessibility errors"

However, I am unable to determine where the errors are. The output page is filled with icons and associated pop-up boxes. The closest icon that I can find that looks like an error has a picture of a hand and a question mark.
However, there are far more than eight of them. Also, the text in the pop-up boxes looks more like a warning than an error.

Any help in interpreting the WAVE output for http://cnx.org/content/m45284/latest/ would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Dick Baldwin
