Pivot and Accessibility

Pivot is committed to providing an experience that is fully accessible to everyone. Ex Libris makes every effort to ensure that all Pivot pages comply with Web accessibility guidelines.

Due to the scale and complex nature of Pivot content and services, this is an ongoing effort. Please contact Ex Libris if you have any comments, questions, or feedback.

Standards

While designing the Pivot interface, Ex Libris complies with the following Web accessibility standards and laws:

  • Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act

Further details about how Pivot addresses Section 508 compliance can be found in Ex Libris' VPAT statement

  • The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Level A and Level AA of the WAI Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0)

In addition to the specific accessibility standards, Ex Libris follows broader web coding standards e.g. HTML5 and CSS2 to ensure compatibility with as wide a range of browsers and assistive technologies as possible.

Testing

Pivot code is checked for accessibility using a range of automated and manual checks. For example, colors used throughout the interface are tested against the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) standards for luminosity contrast, color difference, and brightness difference. Ex Libris also tests the interface for screen reader accessibility using JAWS with Internet Explorer during implementation. Other tools used to test accessibility include:
