We believe all educators and learners should be able to access and use our textbook and digital offerings, Learning Site® application, and company website.
We are committed to making this website usable by all people, including those with disabilities by meeting or exceeding the requirements of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 Level A/AA (WCAG 2.1 A/AA). We strive to make our sites an equal experience for everyone.
We continue to monitor our site and make sure that all content provided is accessible to all visitors. In order to help us in this process, we have engaged The Bureau of Internet Accessibility (BoIA.org), an accessibility consulting company, to conduct a full accessibility audit consisting of both automated and manual testing of our website using BoIA’s A11Y® platform which provides us with specific recommendations that will assist us in ensuring that our Web presence is in conformance with the WCAG 2.1 A/AA.
Some of our specific initiatives include, but are not limited to the following:
- Creation of Accessible Products: Wayside Publishing is using the guidelines above to create user-friendly digital products that are accessible to all audiences.
- Creation of Accessible Content: Wayside Publishing has established a Diversity and Inclusion Rubric used in the development of all our titles, which aims to ensure that the authentic native speaker materials and resources and all other print and digital resources in all of our programs allow learners to feel comfortable and motivated. We strive to present the content in legible, easy-to-use formats catering to the needs of as many learners and instructors as we can reach.
It is important to note that our efforts are ongoing as we work to implement the relevant improvements to meet WCAG 2.1 A/AA guidelines over time.
