This is a checklist that can assist in making the educational environment more accessible to students and employees with disabilities. It was developed to inform and assist educational entities regarding information technology (IT) accessibility and presents it in a less formal manner than federal and state guidelines and standards, with the understanding that it is not a replacement for these.
Users of this checklist might choose to register and use the checklist online, or might choose to print it out and keep it on file in hard copy. Each item in the checklist, for example, ‘Our televisions are capable of displaying Closed Captions‘ links to a more in-depth explanation of what each modification means, and the guideline or standard from which it originates. Users are also referred to their regional ADA and IT Centers for further information.
The knowledge base is extensive and the entire checklist is very user-friendly. It is a valuable tool for entities to use to ensure they are in compliance, whether in start-up or operational phases.
