We are currently working to increase accessibility and usability of our website to meet or exceed the requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1991 and 网页内容易读性指引 (WCAG) 2.0.
To help make the 杰克逊的大学 website a positive place for everyone, we’ve been using the 网页内容易读性指引 (WCAG) 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, 对每个人都很友好. The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA). We’ve chosen Level AA as the target for the 杰克逊的大学 website.
The college uses SiteImprove, a paid service, to ensure new pages on the 1n6.ipixsmedia.com website comply with best practices and accessibility guidelines as defined by the 网页内容易读性指引 (WCAG) 2.0 (down to Level AA) and Section 508 of the U.S. 康复法案(2017年).
SiteImprove offers regularly scheduled, automated checks as well as on-demand checks against WCAG 2.0 A级和AA级标准.
