Introduction
This chapter gives information about the accessibility checks that Monsido performs. The four principles of web accessibility for website content as specified in W3C are:
If any of these are not true, users with disabilities will not be able to use the Web.” |
For more information, see the external guide:
Monsido prioritizes the results of the accessibility checks and places any issues in the following categories:
Error
The issue is in direct conflict with the standard and needs to be fixed.
Warning
The issue is most likely in conflict with the standard, do a manual review and fix the issue.
Review
The issue cannot be programatically determined as an error or warning and requires human review . Do a manual review of the issue to determine if any fix can be done.
For more information, see the User Guide chapter:
