Developing solutions for your campus
The process of evaluating current electronic accessibility and creating a campus plan requires a high level view of your current campus ecosystem combined with a detailed list of your final goals. Most importantly, our experience shows that an overarching, integrated approach is the most effective.
Audit / Campus visit
TesselLearn staff researches and reports remotely while working with you to create a campus visit and audit plan. We audit attitudes, products, and processes along with the following categories: websites, educational materials, software and hardware, documents, media and other electronic, information and communication technology. TesselLearn owner and staff understand 508 and 508 Refresh standards, WCAG 2.0 / 2.1; ATAG 2.0; UAAG 2.0 and WAI-ARIA. We use JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver and a variety of other screenreaders along with Dragon Naturally Speaking, other appropriate assistive technology and automatic and manual methods during reviews.
EIT / Digital Accessibility Campus Coordination
We work at all levels of campus structure to understand your unique concerns and develop needed accessibility knowledge and support for administrators, faculty, staff and students. Our expertise and experience translate into solid plans that consider multiple scenarios and provide researched and fast solutions. This is an iterative process that includes:
- an overview of the various barriers (and benefits) of the technologies used on your campus with discussion of how they impact your existing campus structure and processes,
- consideration of the various categories of technologies and their products (for example documents, signage, media, software and hardware, etc.) along with the level of attention your campus wishes to give each category and
- specific “barrier removal” standards and processes for individual programs and their interfaces with other programs and process.
We will assist you in building accessible, usable components that build on each other and create an integrated framework for electronic accessibility that fosters education.
Tessellearn staff can follow-up with campus visits and remote interactions. Support for campus constituents is available throughout all stages of your process. Remote presentations and training, along with meetings and discussions, are common elements. They can also be arranged to deal with unexpected complications or additional questions.
