ADA COMPLIANCE

Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 requires institutions that receive federal funding including public higher education institutions and public K-12 schools to provide software and website accessibility to people with disabilities. When websites are 508 Compliant, they are accessible to all users. The objective is to break down barriers and provide new opportunities for all Internet users.!

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.

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.
