LERA Help - Workflows
The Scan function audits one page at a time for any given domain against WCAG 2.1 Level A and AA success criteria.
Violations are shown as a Summary and a graphical distribution categorized by severity. Details of the issue available under the Automated Issues page. The issues can be filtered by Severity and Success Criteria, and each issue description expanded for further details. Apart from the issue description, LERA also displays the path, code snippet, and recommendations on how to fix the error. There is also a visual assistant that visually identifies the error on the target page. The element will be highlighted with a yellow shadow, and the page centers itself to bring the error to the center of the screen.
The Scan workflow has two main sub functions – Scan and Save. The scan role allows multiple webpages of a single domain to be audited for accessibility issues, one at a time.
