Our Commitment to Ensuring Access
Tevera, LLC (“Tevera”) is committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities. As a product team, we are working to continually learn about accessibility standards and improve the user experience for everyone.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA.
Tevera is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.
In 2019, Tevera released the mobile and accessible version of the Timesheets workspace for students. In 2020, Tevera developed the rest of the accessible student experience including assignments, site placement, communications, and help. All of these environments were designed to conform to WCAG 2.1 level AA. After development, we hired a third party vendor to conduct multiple accessibility audits of the student experience and to write a VPAT. This initial audit uncovered a handful of areas where improvements were needed to meet guidelines. Our designers and developers continued to learn more about accessibility standards, and worked to remediate the remaining issues.
If you have questions or concerns about our pursuit of web accessibility, or if you would like to participate in the development and testing of the new mobile environments, please contact your Customer Support Manager today.
