Hi Tomasz,

my colleague Jens Witzel has made the ZORA interface in many aspects WCAG
compliant, see 
https://eur03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.zora.uzh.ch%2Faccessibility.html&amp;data=01%7C01%7Ceprints-tech%40ecs.soton.ac.uk%7Cc36acb39f66f43c1ad2e08d76392ecd9%7C4a5378f929f44d3ebe89669d03ada9d8%7C0&amp;sdata=umWqSScQhx5mn7KvdPqr4IqscbGhZyd%2FiNPCv%2BUtiuA%3D&amp;reserved=0
There will always be restrictions with regards to accessibility in a
repository, notably because of the uploaded documents for which one will
have no influence on how they are produced.

Before this project was started, one important prerequisite was to make the
UI completely HTML5 compliant using Bootstrap and other components.
Since many plugins deliver non-HTML5 code out of the box (often no
separation of data and UI), these had to be adapted or a afterburner script
that modifies the DOM had to be used.

The accessibility project then included then analysis of the pages using
various tools, accompaniment by the Disability Office of the University of
Zurich (and also the Communications Office), modification of plugins,
templates, phrases etc., and accompaniment and audit by an specialized
office on accessibility. According to our JIRA documentation, it took about
18 months, although not 100% of the worktime was invested, but free time
when no other urgent projects were on the list.

Best regards,

Martin

Has anyone tried to get their EPrints instance to be compliant with WCAG
2.0 requirements?

I've been using this tool, 
https://eur03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwave.webaim.org%2F&amp;data=01%7C01%7Ceprints-tech%40ecs.soton.ac.uk%7Cc36acb39f66f43c1ad2e08d76392ecd9%7C4a5378f929f44d3ebe89669d03ada9d8%7C0&amp;sdata=f1BiMOntnis8pNfBCKzD0%2FCaVPdYcp9uNnimrFBa%2ByI%3D&amp;reserved=0, and it is finding a
lot of errors, but perhaps these are mostly caused by the template of our
instance?
