What is Web Accessibility and why is it Important?
In order for a web page to be considered accessible, it must be able to be read by a screen reader, which is a tool that translates a website’s content into audio or braille for blind users.
At Coursedog, we prioritize accessibility to ensure that all of your students have access to your catalog, but we can’t do it alone, in order to ensure accessibility there is one key step that you must take whenever building or editing pages in your catalog.
Introducing WAVE: The Web Accessibility Evaluation Tool
WAVE runs a comprehensive check of your webpage and shows you any points at which a screen reader gets stuck.
To use WAVE, simply paste your webpage’s url here. WAVE shows you a summary of all of the errors and alerts on your webpage, which you can easily go back and fix in our catalog builder.
