Overview

Ally accessibility reports are exported as CSV file. These CSV files provide detailed data about the items with issues on your site. But what does this data mean?

Rows are domains in the Domains report and Web pages or files in the other reports. Columns are general information, scores, and accessibility issues. Reports start with general information in the first few columns.

After the general information, the reports show the different content types and the total number of each one, including files and content created in the site manager application. These are columns pdf to other in the CSV file.

In the case of the individual domain or section report, the exact content types are all listed in the column with the "Mime type" heading.

Next, the reports detail how many items in a section have specific accessibility issues. The number in the column headings represent the severity level of the issue.


What does the number in the issue column headings mean?

The number in the column heading represents the severity level of the issue.

  • 1 represents severe issues
  • 2 represents major issues
  • 3 represents minor issues

For example, ImageSeizure:1 is a severe issue while AlternativeText:2 is a major issue.

This makes it easier to parse the severity of each issue in an automated way.
