    I merged your two postings into one....

    I am an end user like you - I assume from your post that you are asking about the Websites + Marketing Platform 

    I just ran my test site through the Wave tool https://wave.webaim.org/

    I had 3 missing alt text and 3 empty links which could have been something I didn't configure.

     

    As you may be aware while there are coding elements to the templates which are needed for compliance - much of the guidelines are around content and how you've set things up - for example jumping from a H1 to a H3 with no H2 in between.

     

    I don't know that GoDaddy has any specific templates which have specifically flagged as accessible. Without seeing the reports it's hard to say specifically which elements are from the template vs your own content.

     

    Personally I build using WordPress and install some accessibility widgets - if you are in a position where you MUST pass every last element of the guidelines I suggest looking at WordPress with a theme like Twenty Sixteen or Twenty Twelve - These are mostly text based themes - You can have graphics - just make sure you put in the titles / alt text.

     

    My experience with meeting the accessibility guidelines and passing all of them - is that you end up sacrificing design (images and layout) for functionality / ease of use.

     

    You can still have a nice looking site you just need to be aware of all the settings

    Accessibility Violations Guidelines WCAG 2.1 How has Go Daddy complied with Accessibility Violations Guidelines WCAG 2.1 AA AODA SECTION 508 for the Canadian Laws? Has Go Daddy passed the Web Content Guidelines, because there are Accessibility Inspector Scanners that are checking our websites and insisting that our website, that is developed by Go Daddy's Templates, have several Violations? Has anyone dealt with this issue and has had to fix this situation or buy a Widget?
