FEAT logotype, links to  startpage Features for Accessibility through Templates

Calendar event page

The calendar event page is used to create and communicate events on the website.

Overview

The calendar event page consists of features to set start- and stop times as well as city and venue for the event. 

The web author can decide which list items they would like to show in the listing and which time span it should be possible to filter the listing on. 

Accessibility support 

  • The page can't be published if the image is missing an alternative text. The web author also receives a warning if the alternative text is shorter than five charactersasking to consider a more descriptive alternative text. The web author also has the possibility to select if the image is a decorative image. If so, the image will be published with an empty alternative text (alt=””) and the attribute role=”presentation”. 
  • If the web author selects an end time of the event that is before the start time, an error message is displayed and the page cannot be published. 
  • The web author also decides the size and position of the block, based on pre-defined design support, ensuring that the result is accessible.

Making life easier for web authors

The templates created in the FEAT project are making it significantly easier to create accessible content. Many of the steps that are usually handled manually, are automated in these templates.

As a comparison, we have created a checklist for web authors who are using the ordinary Episerver set-up, so you can see for yourself what a hassle you can avoid by using the FEAT templates.
