Anthology is committed to providing products that are usable by as many people as possible by placing an emphasis on accessibility throughout the product design and development process. Accessibility champions throughout our organization are integrated into the development process.
Anthology strives to maintain its products to be conformant with WCAG 2.1 Level AA success criteria. Anthology regularly assesses its software to determine whether accessibility standards are being met and maintained. Anthology maintains Accessibility Conformance Reports (ACRs) for its products, which can be provided upon request.
Testing and Tools
Anthology conducts internal testing and evaluation on all products, and some products are also tested and evaluated by a third-party vendor prior to major releases.
The third-party vendors apply two methodologies:
- The DHS Trusted Tester process, which includes manual processes based on IAAP WAS testing methods and manual testing with screen readers.
- The W3C Website Accessibility Conformance Evaluation Methodology (WCAG-EM) which includes manual accessibility testing, automated accessibility tools, and testing with assistive technology across multiple platforms and browsers.
Products that are internally evaluated and tested utilize some of the following testing tools and assistive technologies: WAVE by WebAIM; axeDevTools by Deque; Lighthouse; NVDA; JAWS; Apple Voiceover; Google Talkback; Dragon Naturally Speaking; Read & Write; Read Aloud; ARC Rules accessibility evaluator; Accessibility Viewer; Accessibility Insights for Web; browser developer tools; color contrast analyzers by WebAIM and TPGi; and the W3C Nu HTML Checker.
We welcome your feedback on the accessibility of our products. Please contact us with any questions or concerns at [email protected].
