Voluntary Product Accessibility Template
In July 2018, 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). Please note that this applies only to the Credo Online Reference Service Platform.
Our Education products have also been evaluated for accessibility.
For a VPAT for the Credo Learning Tools product, see this page:
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 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).
