Greetings to all UMN Web community members,

Assessing websites for accessibility can be challenging.  Disability
Services sought a means of making this task easier, quicker,  and more
automatic.  After reviewing the HiSoftware Compliance
Phil Kragnes and I  felt that it could be useful for University of
Minnesota Web developers.  Following a favorable review by a few of your
colleagues, Disability Services purchased a one year license for the
software.  We have created a custom set of checkpoints that align with the UMN
Web Accessibility
Standards<>.  More
information about this service and a link for requesting an account is
available on the Computer Accommodations Program
** **
While we hope that this service will continue beyond the one-year pilot
phase, we make no guarantees.  However we believe that the application
provides a valuable opportunity to improve the accessibility of the
university’s Web presence during its one year deployment.****

We invite you to try out the service<>!
