ADA Compliance / Accessibility

asked 2013-02-21 18:46:56 -0500

I was wondering if there was any effort to test the entire project for accessibility / ADA compliance. If so what tests were used and where can I find those results. I have recently tested an instance of Horizon using the WAVE, , Firefox plugin and found a few things that it classified as errors.

It has not been explicitly "tested", though we do make a best-effort to make it as accessible as possible.

That said, the ADA does not actually make specific technical assertions about what makes a web interface "accessible". It's a matter of best practices and principles established by trial-and-error in various court cases and organizations. So, while any given "test" is certainly providing valuable feedback, there is no absolute metric by which I would say "this must be fixed".

Specific items should be logged as tickets and can be decided upon on their merits.

Hope that makes sense. Thanks for the question!
