Accessibility for Skye family - ready template

Recommended Posts

How can I modify the page header to remove the search icon and make the navigation menu accessible to WCAG 2.0 standards?

I'm building a website for a research lab associated with a University and we need to make sure the site meets WCAG 2.0 standards. These two elements of the page are not compliant but I'm not seeing any way to modify them.

Are these issues known to squarespace and are they on your development plan to address? If so, what is the expected timeline for that?

Thanks!

Jill

I believe for the search icon, you can turn that off in Design > Site Styles > Header:Layout > Search Position: Hide 

You'll also want to do the same for Mobile: Search Icon > Position: Hide

To make the navigation menu accessible, you'll need to add some HTML to the footer of your site using code injection, I've included a blog post I wrote below that includes the code and explains how to install and audit it.

Good luck! Let me know if you have any questions.
