Checking Websites for Accessibility

Often, faculty will require students to read content on websites as a learning activity. Sometimes these pages contain forms that students interact with, such as registering with a professional organization. When you find web pages or sites, you can check their accessibility to get an idea of the problems that someone with a disability might encounter. We’ll look at a way of doing this in this section. Please don’t be afraid or turned off by the display of the code, if you’re not familiar with it. The tools will explain what is wrong and the severity level.
