Accessibility Statement

  1. Section 508: the VPAT or Voluntary Product Accessibility Template form is a voluntary statement of compliance to the Section 508 Standards.

  2. WCAG 2.0: which states that products should be:

    Perceivable, available to be seen or heard through assistive technologies Operable, available to all users through any available device and/or assistive technologies Understandable, content clearly seen or heard through any available technology or device Robust, content accessible via many types of technologies, assistive or otherwise. Support for these accessibility standards is an ongoing initiative at HighWire and supported in the following ways:

    • At annual intervals HighWire audits its standard journal and book site products against section 508 Guidelines for website accessibility and WCAG 2.0 checklist (level A).
    • This audit informs the way we build new products going forward and test new products at launch.
    • Standard HighWire pages for our book and journal sites either “support” or “support with some exceptions” VPAT Section 1194.22 Web-based intranet and Internet information and applications where applicable.
