Click here to view the Leganto Accessibility Statement.
Accessibility and inclusion are important to Ex Libris and a key part of our ongoing commitment to the customer community. To ensure that our software is accessible to all our users, we work through various channels — programming and testing techniques, collaboration with customers, and external auditing.
Throughout the development process, we roll out new features with accessibility being part of the design. Leganto undergoes annual auditing by an external consulting company, most recently Deque Systems, and our accessibility roadmap addresses their rejects and recommendations. Additionally, we receive accessibility feedback from customers via support tickets. Reported issues are handled on an ongoing basis and prioritized based on the severity and the functionality impacted. Leganto monthly releases regularly include development in support of accessibility.
Please review the report of the most recent audit conducted by Deque Systems, based on VPAT version 2.4. This audit report refers to the July 2021 Leganto release. While we develop new features in accordance with accessibility standards, as outlined above, the audit report does not cover developments added after this date.
The FAQs below are reviewed and updated once a year, following the annual accessibility audit. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us via a support ticket (for current customers) or the feedback button at the bottom of this page.
