Out Of The Box
Bricks Templates come with basic requirements of web accessibility. Such as –
Sematic HTML (If you have correct sturctures, you can do further optimization as you need by consulting with accessibility expert).
Responsivness for all devices.
Testing with NVDA screen reader to determin all contents are readable by screen reader.
Validating with automate scanner to correct basic structure ( Tool use : WAVE , axe Tools and other free sources) – results may vary.

See common issues for what you need to improve proactively when you develop you webites by using “Bricks Templates”.
When you test templates with automate accessibility tools, you will see the most common issues describe below –
Suspicious link text
Image map area missing
Non script elements
Suspicious alternative text and so on.
As just a template all links are not connect to real webpages. It’ll be easy fix when you develop your website.
It can be probably fix by following your client’s brand color guideline.
Suspicious Links Text
Most links are dummy. If you put real one, it could be solve.
It cause by same links on same page. For example : Home
Image map area missing
You can fix by setting makers in Bricks map element.
Non Script elements
We maybe or may not be avoid this one cause by third parties scripts or plugins.
Suspicious Alternative Text
You can avoid that problem by putting real descriptive alternative text.
Landmarks should have a unique role or role/label/title
Especially I get this message from custom build footer Nav item . I just name aria-label value as “footer”. When you develop your website, you can change it to unique name to nave tag aria-label. See – Picture for better understanding.
These are knowing issues by testing with available free sources. But maybe more. For further investigation, consult with your expert.
