Visual Lists May Not Be Properly Marked


Under the Accessibility Final Checks I receive the Potential Problem: Visual lists may not be properly marked.


  • Omni CMS


Potential problems are either code that may cause errors or possible errors that cannot be automatically checked and require human review.

Omni CMS Final Checks look over all the code on a page and detect accessibility issues that do not meet WCAG 2.0 (Level AA) standards. It has detected that the page possibly contains a list on your page that is not using the proper bulleted or numbered list from the WYSIWYG toolbar. This is often flagged if you typed in 1., 2., 3., or •, *, or other character to create a list with text. It is best practice to use the correct list formatting for assistive technology.


Lists should use the WYSIWYG bulleted or numbered lists to ensure that lists are accessible. 

  1. Check out the page if it is not already.
  2. Click the  Edit tab.
  3. Click the  Edit Button on the content area where the REPLACE is located.
  4. Highlight the list, click the unordered or ordered list WYSIWYG toolbar button to turn the items into one of the list formats:
    • Unordered List
    • Ordered List
  5. Save the page.
  6. Click the Publish button to run the accessibility final check again.
