Description (last modified by sabreuse)

Twenty Fourteen has a few accessibility issues that I've found:

  • Remove title attributes on featured image permalinks and entry meta. There may be others as well.
  • A few color contrast issues (our goal is a contrast ratio of 4.5:1 in text below 18px):
    • gray on white (meta, blockquotes) is 3.36:1. recommended: replace with 767676
    • green on white (links) is 3.13 recommended: replace with 24890d
    • dark gray on black (site description & colophon) 3.7:1; change the alpha value to 0.5 for a 5.2:1 ratio
  • The search button in toolbar can't be focused with the keyboard
  • Dropdown menus aren't keyboard accessible (note that this is true of nearly all themes)
  • There's no visible focus on tag links. They should match the focus style.

This is a first pass; please comment with any additional issues.
