      Description

      The Mirage (v1) theme has minor WCAG 2.0 Level AA accessibility issues on the homepage. These can be seen by using an online accessibility checker (e.g. https://achecker.ca/checker/index.php) against the default Mirage v1 theme

      • Search box (class="ds-text-field " name="query") in sidebar is missing a corresponding <label> element
      • HTML document language is not identified (no "lang" element)
      • Color contrast of some text is not sufficient

      This issues all seem relatively minor, but would require a volunteer to resolve in the Mirage 1 theme.  We have not done extensive accessibility validation of all other pages in the Mirage 1 theme, so additional minor issues may exist elsewhere.
