How does Cyberschool promote ADA compliance?
Evaluation of Layout – We take a good look at how our layouts measure up to accessibility standards. Contrast, colors, and structural elements are all assessed.
Our CMS Platform – Cyberschool’s content management system platform has full accessibility and ADA compliance built right in meeting the WCAG 2.0 AA Standards. The platform contains elements that assist commonly used technologies including screen readers and refreshable Braille displays.
Captions to Images – Any images on your site need to include alt text in the code or descriptive captions. Remember, colorblind people and screen readers cannot differentiate based on color alone. When adding an image to Cyberschool, you are greeted with a text box where you can put the description of the image. This description is added to the ALT tag of the image.
Editor Content Quick Fix – Our CMS has a built in button to scan your content for accessibility. Infractions will result in a popup box that explains the issue, why it’s important, and how you can fix it. The highlight of this is system a ‘quick fix’ button that you can simply press to fix the HTML of your content.
Full Page Scanner – Our full page scanner enables you to scan your colors, your content, and your structural elements to ensure compliance. This enables you to check us and ensure that we are compliant. If you pass, you can timestamp the outside with the date and time that you passed compliance. This enables you to deter predatory litigation as well as reassure parents that you are striving to ensure compliance.
Training – We provide ADA compliance content training for your content manager(s) so your district won’t run the risk of creating non-compliant content.
Ongoing Reporting and Support: We keep you current as accessibility and compliance laws evolve. We provide ongoing reporting and updates and make you aware of any compliance issues that you are responsible for.
