1. Firebug Accessibility Extension 0.91 Alpha


Looking at new extension using

CCR currently set to AAA levels - Rule: Color_2

Suggestion to stick w/ WCAG Level A and AA

Need to identify in message what level of WCAG (A, AA, or AAA)

JG: Red outline / highlighting not very salient with people

AA: If you could read bg color and make highlight inverse could be helpful

JG: Or read bg color and select a color that supports WCAG ccr

AA: Level of WCAG checking needs to be clear (A, AA, AAA)

PA: Images tab - small bug - if you select any image above the first one by using the mouse (clicking the row) and now move up using the keyboard to the top row, and continue to press up arrow key, you return to the row that you selected with the mouse before.

JG: Have some support for keyboard but need to finish that work

JG: There are some bugs in Firebug keyboard support that Hans is working on, but we need to define our own keyboard list.

PA: Sent a list of comments to Jon in e-mail

AA: Question - headings and landmarks - how can we see all of the landmarks on the page?

JG: There are no landmarks on the CNN page

JG: That's a question we have - how should you warn people that something doesn't exist? For example, the fact that there are no landmarks on CNN page?

NH: Add an Element of "page" to Headings/Landmarks and anything that applies to the whole page that is missing would be there

MJ: Perhaps add a Summary tab that lists # of manual checks, # of violations, # of passes etc - and include that there are no landmarks on a page

AA: Something that would combine / give summary of left panel for each tab

NH: Ability to hide pass / fail

AA: Way to capture to CSV output?

JG: Could be two types of reports.. WCAG organization and element organization

JG: Will be adding Preferences to the extension

JG: A, AA, AAA, option to test for broken links, assume tables are for markup or layout
