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.

50,000 Accessibility and HTML checks per month. Fully automated.

Let our automated scanner check your large sites using Axe Core and W3C Validator.

<li> elements must be contained in a <ul> or <ol>

All list items (li) must be contained within ul or ol parent elements.

For a list to be valid, it must have both parent and child elements. Parent elements can either be a set of ul tags or a set of ol tags. Child elements must be declared inside of these tags using the li tag.

Screen readers notify users when they come to a list, and tell them how many items are in a list. Announcing the number of items in a list and the current list item helps listeners know what they are listening to, and what to expect as they listen to it.

If you don't mark up a list using proper semantic markup in a hierarchy, list items cannot inform the listener that they are listening to a list when no parent is indicating the presence of a list and the type of list.
