Through direct involvement with research centers, experts, advocates, and users in the accessibility community, RedShelf is on the forefront of accessibility development.
Our software design, fast navigation, and intuitive study tools align with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) for content that is perceivable, operable, understandable and robust.
The Section 508 Standards outline the development and maintenance of technology for people with physical, sensory, or cognitive disabilities. The ADA Standards require state and local governments, businesses, and organizations to provide programs, goods, and services to people with disabilities on an equal basis with the rest of the public. WCAG 2.0 aims to provide an international standard for Web content accessibility now and in the future. By continuously incorporating these and other applicable standards into our product offerings, RedShelf becomes increasingly accessible for all users.
RedShelf is always expanding the accessibility software we officially support by being directly involved with accessibility innovations including membership in the Center for Accessible Materials Innovation (CAMI) National Task Force, a Georgia Institute of Technology AMAC Accessibility Solutions and Research Center program funded by the U.S. Department of Education. We are also a member of California State University’s Affordable Learning Solutions Program and its Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI), which provides resources and technologies to individuals with disabilities. Finally, we partner with Tech for All, Inc. to conduct independent Comprehensive Accessibility Evaluations of the RedShelf platform to test, analyze, and identify accessibility barriers encountered when using the portal by people with disabilities.
