Looking for Accessibility Policies, Standards, & Checklists

Doug Minor-2
I'm currently developing campus accessibility policies, standards, accessibility checklists for our website and third-party provided sites/services. I'd rather not have to recreate the wheel. Do any of you have your own policies, standards, checklists and other accessibility training materials that you are particularly proud of that you would be willing to share?

Also, what tools are you using to validate your website. We use a combination of WAVE and Siteimprove, but I'm looking for other scanning tools (free or low cost tools/services that validate down to WCAG 2.0 Level AAA) that are available for Mac and Windows (my team is on Macs). This is for more deep dives into websites that are much lower down in our site hierarchy. 

Thanks in advance for any information and suggestions.

Doug

Siteimprove will validate at WCAG 2.0 AAA.  That’s what I use.

We are also using Siteimprove and liking the interface and the reporting within that tool.

 

We would also be very interested in seeing others policies as published on your sites.

The state of Kansas also provides us with access to AMP (http://www.ssbbartgroup.com/products/amp/).  That said, we use WAVE more than anything.

Hi Joanne, 

In response to your question... We are very happy with Siteimprove. It's a great tool and I highly recommend it. Siteimprove charges by the number of pages you scan on your site and we just use it with our CMS and not all websites hosted by the college. So I'm looking at other tools to scan deeper into our site. Also, my experience is that it's useful to scan with a couple accessibility tools because you do get some false positives (and the opposite of that, if that makes sense). So using a couple tools can be helpful. 

I also find the WAVE tool useful in that you can email a link to a given page to web authors/developers using a WAVE URL http://wave.webaim.org/report#/[insert site URL to Page] and they can see the specific errors on a page, which will change as issues are addressed.

Thanks,

Doug

Doug, I recommend taking a look at http://accessibility.psu.edu.  Some of it may be Penn State specific, but the vast majority is not, and there is a lot of really good training information to be found there.

Do any of you have your own policies, standards, checklists and other accessibility training materials that you are particularly proud of that you would be willing to share?

Also, what tools are you using to validate your website. We use a combination of WAVE and Siteimprove, but I'm looking for other scanning tools (free or low cost tools/services that validate down to WCAG 2.0 Level AAA) that are available for Mac and Windows (my team is on Macs). This is for more deep dives into websites that are much lower down in our site hierarchy.

Thanks in advance for any information and suggestions.

Doug

Here are a couple of sites we do:

http://accessibility.ku.edu/

http://content.accessibility.ku.edu/

 

The state of Kansas also provides us with access to AMP (http://www.ssbbartgroup.com/products/amp/).  That said, we use WAVE more than anything.

Hi Joanne, 

In response to your question... We are very happy with Siteimprove. It's a great tool and I highly recommend it. Siteimprove charges by the number of pages you scan on your site and we just use it with our CMS and not all websites hosted by the college. So I'm looking at other tools to scan deeper into our site. Also, my experience is that it's useful to scan with a couple accessibility tools because you do get some false positives (and the opposite of that, if that makes sense). So using a couple tools can be helpful. 

I also find the WAVE tool useful in that you can email a link to a given page to web authors/developers using a WAVE URL http://wave.webaim.org/report#/[insert site URL to Page] and they can see the specific errors on a page, which will change as issues are addressed.

Thanks,

Doug

Doug-I’m interested to know to what extent that Siteimprove isn’t satisfying your assessment needs?  Why do you feel that you need to use WAVE and yet another to-be-identified tool?

Doug, I recommend taking a look at http://accessibility.psu.edu.  Some of it may be Penn State specific, but the vast majority is not, and there is a lot of really good training information to be found there.

On a related note, how are you all determining a document's compliance?

For example, if I run a particular document (https://www.mills.edu/administration/presidents_office/documents/BIO_Hillman.pdf) through Adobe Acrobat Pro Accessibility Tool, it only flags that there is no alt text provided for the images. If I run the same document though PAC Accessibility Checker 2.0, I see that there are also errors noted on the Structure Elements ("figure" bounding boxes), missing MetaData, and missing DocTitle. If I run that same document through sensusaccess.com and then try to check its accessibility using PAC, I see that the document that sensusaccess produced then introduces nearly 300 errors (mostly content and natural language related).

Which compliance test is valid? How can I expect a staff layperson to create a compliant document when I can't even find a consistent test it should pass?

Thanks,
Angelique

how are you all determining a [PDF] document's compliance?

 

Our school uses Siteimprove, which now checks PDFs as well. We consider the Acrobat Pro tool to be a good starting point for most of our documents and they must pass that checker before we will post them to our website. If Siteimprove then flags a document we will most likely send it back to be fixed. We consider Siteimprove to be the definitive checker at our institution.

RE: Looking for Accessibility Policies, Standards, & Checklists

Allen,Anne L
In reply to this post by Angela French

I have been recently named Interim EIT Accessibility Officer for University of Florida and also been charged with leading the effort for our institution.  I have been with UF for most of my career, in web administration, course development and been active in accessibility for the past couple of decades before moving into administration.  I also graduated from the UF’s Law School.

 

We started working on our current EIT Accessibility in August, 2016 within our governance system and socialization of the draft policy began in January of this year.  We expected the policy to be adopted and published by now, but awaiting input from one last group that was just recently formed.  I have attached our draft policy and hope that it will be published before the end of next month.

 

OCR/DOJ Checklist – after reading all the Office of Civil Right/Dept. of Justice legal cases involving institutions of higher education and EIT accessibility, I created a list of items to be accomplished to mitigate risk for our institution.  This is a high level summary, but each item has been required by the Federal Courts.

·         EIT Accessibility Policy

·         EIT Accessibility Officer

·         Enterprise EIT accessibility tool for assessments and reports

·         Training

·         Procurement compliance with policy and standards

·         EIT Accessibility  web portal

·         Create a standing governance committee

·         Evaluate EIT accessibility service

 

Tools – we are in the process of purchasing tools to assist with compliance, and have negotiated site wide licenses so these services will be available campus wide.

·         SiteImprove – our contract covers our entire domain name, this is also how we will provide reports and track improvement

·         SensusAccess – amazing document conversion service, upload/download to more accessible formats, still needs human intervention for descriptions of images, but does a good job on complex text, has 37 languages available and converts to large array of formats. Very inexpensive service.  http://www.sensusaccess.com/

 

I have been presenting to many groups on our campus and have a full presentation on all this information if there are further questions on what we are doing.  I am also working with our University Relations department so that our communication and awareness campaign is consistent and comprehensive across the institution.  We are including all senior communication individuals early and making them a part of the implementation process.

 

I appreciate all the information I have gotten from this group over the years, while I was a lurker, and hope this helps any of you in this process now.

Hi Jon

 

We are fortunate to have a centralized editing model for our prospective student website. All documents (and content) are posted by the web team, and we do check to ensure they comply, to the extent that time permits of course J

 

Our student/staff portal is decentralized though, so although editors are told when they get access to edit that their documents must comply, enforcement is limited to whether or not I happen to find issues.

 

Siteimprove really helps in this regard, although I certainly wish we had more time to spend fixing all the issues it finds!

they must pass that checker before we will post them to our website

 

Just curious how you enforce that. Do you have web editors across campus and do they have the ability to upload documents?

how are you all determining a [PDF] document's compliance?

 

Our school uses Siteimprove, which now checks PDFs as well. We consider the Acrobat Pro tool to be a good starting point for most of our documents and they must pass that checker before we will post them to our website. If Siteimprove then flags a document we will most likely send it back to be fixed. We consider Siteimprove to be the definitive checker at our institution.

On a related note, how are you all determining a document's compliance?

 

For example, if I run a particular document (https://www.mills.edu/administration/presidents_office/documents/BIO_Hillman.pdf) through Adobe Acrobat Pro Accessibility Tool, it only flags that there is no alt text provided for the images. If I run the same document though PAC Accessibility Checker 2.0, I see that there are also errors noted on the Structure Elements ("figure" bounding boxes), missing MetaData, and missing DocTitle. If I run that same document through sensusaccess.com and then try to check its accessibility using PAC, I see that the document that sensusaccess produced then introduces nearly 300 errors (mostly content and natural language related).

 

Which compliance test is valid? How can I expect a staff layperson to create a compliant document when I can't even find a consistent test it should pass?

 

Thanks,

Angelique

I'm currently developing campus accessibility policies, standards, accessibility checklists for our website and third-party provided sites/services. I'd rather not have to recreate the wheel. Do any of you have your own policies, standards, checklists and other accessibility training materials that you are particularly proud of that you would be willing to share?

 

Also, what tools are you using to validate your website. We use a combination of WAVE and Siteimprove, but I'm looking for other scanning tools (free or low cost tools/services that validate down to WCAG 2.0 Level AAA) that are available for Mac and Windows (my team is on Macs). This is for more deep dives into websites that are much lower down in our site hierarchy. 

 

Thanks in advance for any information and suggestions.

 

Doug
