Accessibility Statement for Accessible Publishing Learning Network

This is an accessibility statement from eBOUND Canada.

Measures to support accessibility

eBOUND Canada takes the following measures to ensure accessibility of the Accessible Publishing Learning Network:

Conformance status

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. The Accessible Publishing Learning Network is fully conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Fully conformant means that the content fully conforms to the accessibility standard without any exceptions.

Limitations and alternatives

Despite our best efforts to ensure accessibility of the Accessible Publishing Learning Network, there may be some limitations. Below is a description of known limitations, and potential solutions. Please contact us if you observe an issue not listed below.

Known limitations for the Accessible Publishing Learning Network:

  1. Individual resource posts: Resources may not have properly assigned headers or image descriptions. The website has been thoroughly tested for accessibility and we strive to ensure each resource exceeds the standards, but if we’ve missed something please contact us. The Accessible Publishing Librarian will repair issues as soon as they notice them. Please contact the Librarian if you encounter an issue.
  2. Headers for “next steps”: We’re aware that the ideal heading hierarchy for the “next steps” section of a resource would be to have each step as a level 3 heading with the link to the resource as level 4. Due to the current limitations of the system, both the step and the resource link are heading 3.

Assessment approach

eBOUND Canada assessed the accessibility of the Accessible Publishing Learning Network with an evaluation from the National Network for Equitable Library Service (NNELS)
