Delivering a great experience to all our users, regardless of disability or circumstance, is a core principle that underpins how we approach design, development, and support at Cadmus. As such, we are working towards meeting full WCAG 2.0 AA standards of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
We test our A11Y standings using WCAG self-audits and Google Lighthouse.
While we meet the majority of WCAG 2.0 AA standards, we are still working towards full compliance with WCAG 4.1: Compatible, which captures compatibility with assistive technologies for our web-based Rich Text editor
“For all user interface components (including but not limited to: form elements, links and components generated by scripts), the name and role can be programmatically determined; states, properties, and values that can be set by the user can be programmatically set; and notification of changes to these items is available to user agents, including assistive technologies."

Having recently refactored our teacher and student editors to better support web accessibility, we are now working towards assistive technology compatibility and mobile responsiveness. We are looking to achieve full compliance by September 2022.
We are also improving our current development practices, to incorporate greater accessibility testing for any new functionality we deliver moving forward. This will ensure that all new functionality preserves accessibility compliance.
