Take the Website Accessibility Challenge

How well does your school meet ADA and Section 508 guidelines for school website accessibility? If you're not sure, it's time to find out! 

We're inviting you to take the Website Accessibility Challenge. Just put your school website's URL into a free accessibility reporting tool or download a browser plug-in of your choice, and take a look at what it tells you. We found WebAIM's WAVE tool to be the easiest to use, but there are several options to choose from. We recommend starting with one of these (or both of them, if you've got the time): 

So, how did you do? When we put two popular accessibility checkers to the test, we found that they weren't all that easy for non-experts to interpret. Did your website team fare better than our Marketing Director?

Did you take the challenge? Tell us what you learned. 

We'd like to know! Take this quick survey to tell us what you think.
