Baseline Web Accessibility Report - Why am I doing this?

PST Poster Sessions Track

Texas Ballroom 1-3


Where do you turn when faced with building strategy and identifying the direction for your campus Web Accessibility projects? Start with a study of your campus web presence to build a Baseline Report.  This is your "go-to" tool for assessing various stages of accessibility health, for working with university administration and campus departments, and web development teams to successfully navigate resistance and issues impeding rapid remediation. Use your baseline study to identify high-risk web sites and to assist with building your strategic plans to improve and ultimately achieve full compliance with Section 508 Guidelines of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (29 U.S.C. 794d) in 1998 to the Rehabilitation Act. Samples of reports, including research methodology and approach to creating a baseline will be highlighted.
