All Input Tags are not Section 508 Compliance
|Reported by:||dmo7||Owned by:||anonymous|
Not all of the input tags within the Wordpress admin console are section 508 compliant (http://www.section508.gov/). We have scanned the application using compliance software and found many instances where input tags (checkbox, text, textarea, file, radio, etc..) are missing the required label or alt text. (There are many instances where it IS compliant.)
We (developers at a government agency) have the ability to make the changes, but some of the decisions for which exact text to put in the labels and alt text should probably be decided by a more dedicated Wordpress developer. Please contact me if you want our help or input.
We believe that the software is extremely close to 100% compliance. Bringing it to 100% would be a huge deal for government agencies wh are trying to get approval to install and run Wordpress internally and externally.
