 Web Accessibility Evaluation

Web evaluations are conducted to report problems regarding the accessibility and usability of web applications within the CSUF web environment. Testing is done on individual department web sites, vendor resources, or other sites that would be directed to use by the Campus community.  All Campus areas are trained on compliance standards.

The Compliance Sheriff Checkpoints created based on the CSU ATI Accessibility Requirements and Compliance Sheriff Accessibility Module are used to conduct regular tests within the CSUF web domain. Additional manual testing is conducted as needed based on the findings.
