WAVE finds issues such as structural elements, low or no color contrast, and missing text or labels, which make it difficult for those with screen readers to read and navigate a website.

According to the WAVE tool, the library’s website is neglecting the access needs of those with vision impairments and/or those who use screen readers. The three different URLs/areas of the website: the main site, the OPAC, and the events page all tested poorly for those with visual impairments due to low contrast, ill-defined or lack of defined structural elements, and an absence of alternative text captions for images and links.
