ATI Scanning Tools
Monitoring Content For ATI issues
Scanning with Compliance Sheriff
Compliance Sheriff (CS) is an automated testing tool developed by Cyxtera used to assist in testing webpages against accessibility standards. Compliance Sheriff is used throughout the CSU and within the CSUF campus. Websites owned or content that is controlled by campus community required to have someone who can run scans through Compliance Sheriff and is responsible for conducting evaluations.
To gain access to Compliance Sheriff you will need a login and go through training. Training will review not only the interface but also how to report your scan results back to the Campus for quality assurance. You can request training at any time for a one on one training session so you can ask questions, review ATI issues you may not understand, or need a refresh on the current process.
Compliance Sheriff does have an automated scanning system that will regularly scan your sites. There still needs to be a human to review results and requires that someone fix issues. You can start any scan at any time manually so there is no requirement to automate the scan. Scans are configured to run over your entire site including all pages.
Having problems logging in?
To access CS when working from home, you must have our campus Virtual Private Network (VPN) turned on. To learn more about VPN, please visit our campus VPN page. Any other inquiry including password reset, please use the Compliance Sheriff form found on the 'Web Services' page.
Per Page Scanning - Wave browser plug-in
If you want to check content manually or need to see how a single page's content is fairing when it comes to ATI compliancy. We use the Wave Web Accessibility Tool which is a browser plug-in that scans right in your browser while viewing the page in real-time. The Wave tool has various options that will help you target very specific checkpoints. This is an extremely fast method for getting changes made and re-checked on your pages.
