I did an accessibility test of a form that I built through AirTable and found the following issues that I would like to suggest that you repair.
I would like to create a similar form that will be available to the public through our website, but until the accessibility improves, I will not be able to do so.
I was wondering if anyone from AirTable ever responded to your suggestions. I work at a University Library and we can’t even license AirTable because of these issues. I’m hoping they will be resolved.
If they did, they did so without informing me directly (they may have announced changes through their release notes though). I have not tested it a second time to see what improvements they may have made, but glancing through my list once more, I don’t think they’ve addressed any of these.
Thanks for posting this Michelle. We would love to see this addressed. The ease of admin use of airtable forms is great, but we need accessibility on the front end to be able to deploy.
For anyone else with this issue. We resolved it using JotForm which not only addresses accessibility issues but also actually has validation which is a band-aid for airtable not doing data validation :expressionless: They have an integration guideline here which I can’t post the link to but if you google 561-How-to-integrate-JotForm-with-Airtable you’ll find it
I love Airtable, I really do, but I’m disappointed to find that this is still a real problem for people with vision impairment almost 2 years on.
Thank you @Dianna_f for suggesting Jotform integration - I was suprised to find it worked because I am on the airtable free plan which doesn’t include apps. I am guessing this counts as an automation? In which case, can someone from @Airtable like @Jason confirm that I can get 100 form submissions on my current plan? That would be more than enough.
However, I do really like the prefill feature of Airtable forms, so it would be preferable to address Airtable’s own form accessibilty, particularly the contrast. Thank you!
