Accessibility Content Checks

Cascade can run an accessibility content check on any page on your site.  The check is compliant with objective items for levels 1 and 2 of the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) Guidelines that AODA follows.

To run an accessibility check on a page:

  • Find the page that you want to check.
  • Click Edit.
  • Click the ellipsis next to Save & Preview and then click Check Content & Submit.
  • Cascade will run an accessibility check on the page and report any errors or say Congratulations, no accessibility violations were found!"
  • Fix any errors you have on the page or click the check mark at the top of the page to close the alert box.
