All students expect and demand their online experience to be accessible. Inaccessible websites create difficult, sometime impossible, hurdles for disabled students, their parents, and others to navigate. School districts, public and private K-12, college, university and other educational organizations with websites and mobile applications, and the ecosystems that support them, are under pressure to comply with the ADA and WCAG guidelines.
The U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights (OCR) has been focused on website accessibility through its responsibility to enforce Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act. These acts together prohibit discrimination by public organizations, especially those that receive federal funding. Complaints issued by the OCR have been steadily increasing, creating momentum for compliance within this market.
Whether you’ve received an OCR complaint or you’re being pressured by a 3rd party or customer to comply a free and confidential overview website scan will give you a good idea as to the accessibility of your digital presence.
Your free website accessibility scan will evaluate WCAG 2.1 A/AA guidelines in these four areas:
The Guidelines in this category all focus on whether users with varying ability can consume the content on your site.
This means that users must be able to operate the interface, or in other words, the interface can’t require interaction that a user is unable to perform
In addition to being Operable, users must also be able to understand the information being presented to them.
Content must be robust enough that it can be interpreted reliably by a wide variety of user agents, including assistive technologies such as screen readers and alternative input devices.
With its extensive expertise and experience with educational organizations and groups, the Bureau of Internet Accessibility is uniquely qualified to help organizations become compliant per the digital accessibility standards.
