Violations (BETA)

A new view for interpreting and acting on your accessibility violations has been introduced with AMP 9.14. This new view allows users to group their violation instances by Module impacted, Violation Type, and Pattern (when applicable). Please note that this view is still in BETA.

Grouping Control

You can control the grouping of the Violations (BETA) table through the "Grouping By" drop down menu above the groupings. This menu will present you with three (3) options:

  • Module: This grouping will display all the violation instances grouped by the module where the violation instance was found.
  • Violation: This grouping will display all the violation instances grouped by their violation type  (Best Practice).
  • Pattern: This grouping will display all the violation instances grouped by the pattern or global they are a member of. Violation Instances that are not members of a pattern or global will not be listed here. Additionally, if no Pattern or Global violation sets have been created this grouping will be empty.

  • Module Name: The name of the module
  • Module Location: Displays the actual location of the module, for a webpage the location would be the URL for the specific webpage.
  • Instances: The number of violations instances in the module that will be displayed if the module is expanded.
  • ⏷: The down caret icon allows you to expand the module to view the violation instances within that module

Filter by Platform/Media Type

This view also includes a "Filter Violations" controls that allow you to filter the expanded violation instance tables. this filter will give you options for filtering your violation instances across a number of variables as outlined below:

Violations_PlatformMediaType.png

Keyword: You can filter your violations to only include instances that contain a keyword provided by the user.  

Media type: by selecting the dropdown in the 'Platform/Media Type' section of the 'Filter Violations' table. Select the media types and/or platforms that you would like displayed and select the 'Filter' button in order to filter the table. 

Best Practice Type: You can choose between all best practice types, best practices that impact compliance, and best practices that are advisory.

 

Severity: You can choose a specific severity value to quickly filter the table.  

Status: The choices here are 'All', 'Fixed', 'Passed', 'Reviewed', or 'Failed'.  These are the statuses of the violations, all automatically flagged violations being 'Failed' by default.   Alchemy is currently our only product that populates the status of a violation.  

Standard: This lets you filter based on Standard, such as 'WCAG 2.0 A', 'WCAG 2.0 AA', etc. 

 

You are able to collapse the table at any time by activating the ‘Collapse’ action icon, in the upper right-hand area of the filter bar.  It is also shown in the screenshot below.
