An issue is a violation of a Section 508 accessibility guideline. Issues are assigned a priority level:

  • Critical: Should be addressed first. Critical issues may make it impossible or very difficult for users of assistive technology to complete the tasks on the page.
  • Serious: Should be addressed after critical issues. Serious issues make using the Web page difficult, requiring extra effort by users of assistive technology.
  • Moderate: Should be addressed after critical and serious issues. Moderate issues make using the Web page difficult or annoying to users of assistive technology.
