Project Details

What We Need
  • A list of the common issues along with the prioritization of both severity and impact of the accessibility issues found
  • List of areas that do not meet the Section 508, ADA, WCAG 2.0 guidelines
  • Specific recommendations to improve product accessibility their priority level (low, medium, and high priority)
  • Estimated time needed to fix current compliance issues
Additional Details

I received an initial audit and discussion with Jamie about the ways that the 5 Saturdays site can be improved for accessibility. I believe in using agile practices to iteratively deliver increments of value. I want to begin with the home page and prioritize the most important actions needed.

What We Have In Place
  • We can make some of the changes if there is not an available volunteer to get the job done.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,212 , allowing us to have a bigger impact on a larger diverse group of people.

We want to serve as many people as possible by addressing the accessibility challenges on the 5 Saturdays website (https://5Saturdays.org).
