We are: targeting a AA conformance level to accessibility guidelines for the Reader features and functions (excluding ebook content, formatted as publisher has provided) working with a 3rd party company that specializes in accessibility to ensure conformance, Tech for All (www.tfaconsulting.com).www.tfaconsulting.com They’ve reviewed & approved our strategy for the User Interface/tech design certifying our new Reader in Q for use with the following screen readers: JAWS for Windows NVDA for Windows VoiceOver for the Mac Also are enabling patrons with accessibility needs, to turn on accessibility mode themselves (no librarian or tech support assistance needed!) in Q4 Their screen reader reads hidden tags that can toggle accessibility mode on/off ProQuest Confidential 22
