Axe violations on certificate pages

Description

I ran axe when viewing an edx.org certificate and it reported several issues including color-contrast violations and missing lang attributes. We will need to fix these issues in order to bring these views into compliance.

ACs

  • VERIFY that axe reports 0 issues when run for all edx.org-issued certificates

    • honor

    • verified

    • professional

    • Profesional Certificate Program

    • micromasters

    • xseries

  • VERIFY that axe reports 0 issues when run for all open edx templates

  • VERIFY that chrome accessibility tool also passes for all templates

EX:

Note:

  • You can see details about Axe from here https://www.deque.com/products/axe/. You can also install browser extension to view violations.

  • edx.org axe reported issues:

    • Color contrast for all certificates

    • HTML lang on program credentials

  • May need to update the print style separate from the web style. Maybe not, but check!

Since this bug was identified outside of our annual audits, there is no hard deadline. It should be prioritized according to our bug fix policy:
