  • Search Engine Optimization | Columbia University Information Technology

  • 508 Web Accessibility | Columbia University Information Technology
    He or she can move forward or back by headings or any other of the above mentioned elements It is important to remember that the screen reader user cannot see the layout of the page and digest the webpage by just looking at it The person must use the elements to get a sense of the site and its layout Some things to keep in mind when using the elements First each element must be given the proper label or alt tag in the case of an image A very common problem that occurs on the internet is having form fields with no label What ends up happening is that the screen reader cannot provide the person with the type of field that is being viewed If the field requires a name the person would not know this by moving to the field He or she would have to navigate before the field and try to figure out what kind of information the field requires Images are also challenging Sometimes they are also used as a link Without the proper alt tag the screen reader user would not be able to find the link that is being provided by the image IF the images are correctly tagged the screen reader user can get the description of the image and the link that is attached to it Another problem that is common on the internet is the misuse of tables Tables are navigable by screen readers Where they become cumbersome is when they are used for layout as in some older basic html sites tended to use The table is harder to navigate for the screen reader user and can be confusing when it doesn t have any other purpose than just aligning the text The same can be accomplished now with CSS and other formatting options Another concern with tables is nested tables that is tables or cells within cells Here the screen reader user can have a very difficult time navigating the table and understanding where they are in the context of the table It is better to have a clear cell for each element of the table For example each cell should only contain one button or check box I have seen sites where a cell may have a button checkbox and an edit field This kind of layout can be very confusing for a person relying on a screen reader In creating the layout of a webpage it is clearer for the screen reader user to have headings to divide the page into its sections If each important part of the page has a heading the person can quickly navigate to each section by moving through the page by headings Tables and lists should only be used when it is actually organizing information that requires that kind of layout Some Considerations Some areas to consider when creating an accessible website are limitations in the screen reader s ability to access the information The content that causes this
