The Most Likely Accessibility Issues

Lately, I have been working on accessibility report on Krisrtania  University College  a small school in Norway as compare to giant schools like University of Oslo and Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).   I came across the very basic accessibility issues on their website like images with no alternative text. The Alternative consider the basic of the web page accessibility.

The institution nowadays give extra attention to the accessibility but due to lack of findings they lost a potential talent who cannot access their website due to inaccessible content. to implement 100% accessibility is hard but not impossible small initiative and responsibilities for accessible content give you a brilliant student but it depends on institution priorities, either they spend too much money on social media advert ism or   make their website accessible.

how you can ignore the user with visual disabilities. it is  testing like you are running a website without any alternative text.or leave the alternative text null which shows that image is less important or put the alternative text which has not appropriate meaning of  the picture. there is very good article about the alternative text on the images with a flow chart to which what kind of alternative text required for the images on the websites. The Most common accessibility issues faced by sight user who struggle with low vision or no vision to interact with image links. The images which direct a user to another page or content. the alternative text helps users is this information the user required on the page?

The image below shows the violation that their is no accessible code for screen reader to chat with corresponding agent to get any important information.

Hi! I am Danial, a student of Masters in Universal ICT Design at Oslo and Akershus University College, Norway. I am currently doing my research on Three-Dimensional (3D) Touch User experience for elderly people. The research analyzes how senior citizens use, think, and learn new gestures to operate smartphones so they integrate well in a society that's dominated by technology.
