Accessibility Checker upgraded to 3.5.5

by Jaime Iniesta

The Accessibility validation server on Rocket Validator has been upgraded to the latest version of Axe released by Deque, Axe Core 3.5.5 which fixes some bugs:

  • aria-input-field-name: add the missing word must to help metadata.
  • color-contrast: fix font-weight calculation for safari.
  • configure: validate rules and checks properties.
  • is-visible: return false for opacity: 0 and 0 height scrollable regions.
  • listitem: do not fail for parent with role=presentation|none.
  • meta-viewport: don’t throw error if viewport property doesn’t have a value.

Time to re-check your sites!

As usual, it's recommended to re-check your sites after the validation servers have been upgraded, to get the most up-to-date results. Remember that you can schedule your reports to run periodically, so you don't have to do that manually every time.
