Accessibility & usability barriers
The following information is provided to help people with disabilities know what potential barriers may exist.
Magnification and interface barriers create difficulties perceiving information for some users, such as people with low vision.
At 400% magnification, images begin to pixelate and blur. The clear filter button has low color contrast.
Some barriers for individuals using screen readers to enhance accessibility, such as people with low vision and blindness.
Pages do not have a “skip to main content” button. Drop down items in expanded menus are described to users as links and may be misleading. When screen reader users open a popup module, focus does not move into it. Heading levels are not standard and may create confusion.
