Thanks again for reaching out regarding the accessibility of your housing contracts. Keep in mind that it is important that both the contacts and the tool itself are accessible. I mention this because at our meeting we only discussed the accessibility of the digital contracts. The RFP for the tool should also have an accessibility requirement included.
When you are ready to do in-situ user testing with screen readers, Robert Espero (cc’d) can assist.
I looked in the AMP tool and I didn’t see specific user names for Mitch or Connie, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have access (because Shibboleth). The URL for Shibboleth’d AMP access is:
The way to grant access to your web scans in AMP is at the project level via the ‘Project Permissions’ link (see screen shot attached).
Here are some other tools I commonly use that you may find helpful:
W3C Validation Service – http://validator.w3.org
WebAIM Color Contrast Checker: – http://webaim.org/resources/contrastchecker/
WAVE Accessibility Tool: – http://wave.webaim.org
– I point all our outside vendors/developers to this tool because they won’t have access to AMP
Total Validator Pro: – http://www.totalvalidator.com/tools/protool.html
– Great for site-wide validation scans
I’ll get that example contract markup to you ASAP. Feel free to ping me any time.
