Accessibility Checking for Large Sites

Rocket Validator integrates axe-core version 4.3, which currently checks 95 accessibility rules, into an automated web site scanner.

Keep your sites healthy checking for A11Y/HTML issues on an automated schedule.

<ul> and <ol> must only directly contain <li>, <script> or <template> elements

Lists must be marked up correctly, meaning they must not contain content elements other than li elements.

Screen readers have a specific way of announcing lists. This feature makes lists clearer to understand, but will only work if lists are properly structured.

When content elements other than list items are contained within a set of list elements, screen readers cannot inform the listener that they are listening to items within the list.

For a list to be valid, it must have both parent elements (a set of ul elements or a set of ol elements) and child elements (declared inside of these tags using the li element), and any other content elements are invalid.

Although some non-content elements such as script, template, style, meta, link, map, area, and datalist are permitted within lists, content elements other than li are not permitted.
