Let's take one issue at a time.I decided I would make my business sites 'accessible', but when I test them for AAA in Bobby, I keep getting told that there are colour issues with the site. I can see maybe the links being a colour issue, but, with accesskeys doesnt that balance that out somewhat?
Accesskeys: Accesskeys become known to individuals using screen readers or other assistive technology. Accesskeys do not become known to individuals with color-blindness. The colors you use do not provide the level of high contrast required for individuals that can see only shades of grey. For individuals that have red, green or blue you may find some challenges there as well. For high contrast against black you need extremely light colors such as white, ivory, ligher shades of grey, or other similar colors.
Now, let's discuss Bobby for a moment. Bobby does not provide any assurances that a web site is accessible. AskCindy and the other programs are limited as well. WCAG will always require accessibility reviewers to make determinations on their own.
To achieve AAA accessibility you will need to separate your links with more than just white-space. White-space is considered any non-character or image not used as a link. When I achieve this level I often use pipes '|'. You can enclose your links in square brackets . The choice is yours.
Identifying information by color is simple. Here's an example: Should you make your site accessible? Yes or No. The correct answer is in red.
If you can see red, then you can easily choose the correct answer. If you can't see red or green, then you cannot discern the correct answer and are therefore left with a guess.
Now, your images at the bottom leave the color-blind individual with the inability to read those images.
I hope this helps everyone.
