Issue: Google Sites are free to use, but keyboard navigation is difficult to impossible when site structure is more than a couple of layers deep.
Who’s affected: People who navigate by keyboard (hand mobility disabilities), people who use screen readers
WCAG standard: Guideline 2.1: Keyboard accessible
What to do: Avoid using Google Sites when possible. Only use for small (handful of pages) and shallow (ideally one or two levels deep) sites. Use the sidebar menu configuration. Ask for guidance (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’re not sure. If someone in your department is using Google Sites for a site with 20 pages or more, suggest they look into CAEN’s Web Publishing service, which is in WordPress and is more accessible by design.
