When you take the Area 4 ATI training that's required for all developers, you'll learn how to use AccVerify software and interpret the results.

The HSU Web Accessibility Group website also has a list of software tools you can use to assist with accessibility issues on your site.
No. Sites on the new server must meet accessibility guidelines from the get-go. Your site will be scanned monthly by an accessibility checker. If your site fails the scan, a report detailing the problems and what needs to be fixed is sent to the site owner, the University web office, and the divisional web representative. If the problems are not resolved within six weeks, and the web office has no evidence that you are working on them, your site will be shut down.
