ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Accessibility Resources
Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can perceive, understand, navigate and interact with websites through various accessibility tools. It is very important that all web pages on the Ottawa Area ISD website are ADA Compliant. To make sure web pages are following ADA guidelines, ask these questions:
Are the links on the page descriptive?
If NO, then change the link description to something more descriptive. A link such as "click here" is not descriptive. A link such as "Accessiblity Resources on the Web" would be very descriptive.
Are there images on the web page?
If YES, then make sure that the Alternative Language Tab (ALT) descriptions for all photos and graphics are provided.
Are there links to documents on the web page?
If YES, then make sure that all documents are in a "readable" format. If it is a scanned document, it is probably not in a readable format. This site will assist on how to make documents accessible. Also make sure that if a plugin is used that there is a clear text link to download the plugin.
Are there any video or audio clips or links on the web page?
If YES, make sure that the media includes captioning and is descriptive or includes a transcript. It is recommended that videos are loaded to YouTube with Captioning. Also avoid embedding videos as they may not be readable by accessibility tools.
