Using Accessibility Check

Issue/Question

How do I use the Omni CMS Accessibility Check / Final Checks?

Environment

  • Omni CMS

Cause

When publishing a page in Omni CMS, final checks will scan your page for errors. One of the checks it does is for accessibility errors. Accessibility check looks for issues in the page as defined by accessibility standards such as Section 508 and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). It identifies three types of problems (known, likely, and potential):

  • Known problems have been verified as broken or creating an error.
  • Likely problems need to be reviewed by a user to determine if it's actually a problem or not.
  • Potential problems are either code that may cause errors or possible errors that cannot be automatically checked and require human review.

Resolution

Starting October 4th 2021, pages containing any Known Problems will be prevented from publishing. If a page contains a Known Problem, the publish button will be disabled until it is repaired. Likely and Potential problems will not prevent publish, but should also be reviewed and repaired if possible.

If you have accessibility errors, you will receive a red exclamation icon and link which will list the errors. Use the Knowledge Base Final Checks section to find the listed error. Articles will provide an explanation of the error and how to correct it if needed.

If you receive an error that does not have an associated article in the Knowledge Base please contact the ITS Service Desk.
