Confirmation of passed WCAG guidelines

As tester if I am running this tool and in report we get few guideline which are covered as part of WCAG 2.1 . eg: 1.1 AA is shown in report . Then should I assume that all other guideline from 2.1 have been passed by this tool .

False positive - Chrome only - Gravity Forms conditional logic

After contacting Gravity Forms, they were able to replicate this problem and confirm it is a false positive occurring only in Chrome, not Edge or Firefox. Sections of Gravity forms that are "hidden" with conditional logic show "missing form label" errors when they are hidden, even though they clearly show form labels are there.

False positive for Missing Form label

I received an error n my Gravity Forms plugin for "Missing form label". The error indicates a missing form label for the textarea fields on the form. The recommended fix is to add a for attribute to the label element which points to the id of the associated textarea element. However, I had this already in place.

In testing with a different accessibility tool – – I am not able to surface the same error.

Can we export the issues from Wave Tool?

As we all know, the wave tool provides visual feedback, but I'd like to export the issues to csv. Is this supported by Wave Tool?

WAVE tool has stopped working

I have Chrome Version 116.0.5845.188 (Official Build) (64-bit). Previously WAVE was working for me when I was using it earlier this year, however now I click to launch the browser plug-in and nothing happens. I have removed and redownloaded the extension and still cannot get it to launch.

Enhanced Contrast requirements

any idea when the chrome plug in will be updated for the new requirements?

"To meet the WCAG contrast requirement, you should have a contrast ratio of 7:1 for normal text, and 4.5:1 for large text (18pt and above, or 14pt bold)."

Contrast errors for hidden items

With the newer versions I get contrast errors for hidden items (they have display: none; on the entire thing) which doesn't make sense at all.
In 3.1.6 it was working fine.

Why doesn't it show up in the command bar?

I installed Wave. Doesn't work. Has no icon in the task bar of Chrome. Doesn't work if I hit Ctl-Shift-U either :-(

Part of my laptop thinks it is available. If I try to download it again I get a prompt to uninstall Wave. Windows 10.

Questions regarding privacy and data colleciton

Hi there,

Does this chrome app store data? If so, what is the encryption level applied?

What type of encryption is applied while the data is in transit?

Are there any security logs and if so, what information is stored?

Are security events sent to a central security logging facility?
