Voluntary Product Accessibility Template
In October 2017, we completed an internal accessibility evaluation of the Credo Online Reference Service platform using the HTML CodeSniffer tool and several screenreader tools, and created Credo’s VPAT. Click here for Credo’s Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) (PDF link). Please note that this applies only to the Credo Online Reference Service Platform.
Our InfoLit Courseware has also been evaluated for accessibility. Click here for the InfoLit Courseware's Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) (PDF link).
It is a priority for Credo that our system is accessible to all types of users, and we have designed Credo Online Reference Service to be used by people with disabilities.
Credo is committed to compliance with disability aids, such as screen readers. Specific elements have been put in place to aid visually-impaired users:
- Credo Online Reference Service has hyperlinks specifically placed to enable users with screen readers to skip common navigation elements of our pages and jump to a page's main content (visible only to Screenreader tools)
- The Credo Online Reference Service platform provides text equivalents for images, charts and graphs.
