Design system team weeknotes: Issue 5

Show and tell

We’re almost ready to test our user journey (level 2) accessibility testing framework

  • level 1 — that assesses the components in the design system — currently 515/548 tests pass giving us a 94% pass rate
  • level 2 — the user journey level testing we’re developing now

What we’ve done

  1. Critical issues — things that will stop someone from using our products or services.
  2. Major issues — things that will make it very difficult for somebody to use our products and services.
  3. Minor issues — things that will make it frustrating for somebody to use our products or services.
Minor and Critical accessibility issues on an online whiteboard
  • making all functionality available from a keyboard
  • allowing people to resize the content
  • making sure videos can be understood with no sound
  • checking that all the parts of each form have text labels
  • not using hovers to reveal extra information
  • if something changes on a page, it must be described to screen reader users
  • the use of semantics, ARIA landmarks and roles
