Hi, guys!

 

We are trying to build an accessible DNN site for our redesign. We are currently using this accessibility checker http://www.ainspector.org/ , and add on for Firefox. One of the violations is with the DNN Search Box. The skin developer we are working with says that this text box is generated by DNN and it would cost development time to implement any change. We are a nonprofit so I was wondering if there was another way for us to try to do this or if it could be changed in an upcoming release for everybody. (I'm not sure if this is the right place to even post this.)

For those of you not in the know, this can be a very big deal. Tons of companies are reaching settlement agreements.

 

Here is the basic stuff that should be done overall:

And the Search box is basically read as a form. Here is that specific checklist:

And here is a list of just "some" of the settlement agreements:

Best,
