The Artstor platform recently underwent a major platform transition. With the July 2017 platform update, ARTstor began making the site more functional for users with disabilities. Improvements include:
Titles that provide alt text for items
Removal of double clicking to open an item
Language declaration in the Artstor Digital Library’s source code (English) to help screen readers navigate the site
The website is now responsive, meaning users can easily adjust font size and color/contrast settings on most devices.
Preformed recently, a full WCAG 2.0 audit (which encompasses the new Section 508 standards), have made the VPAT 2.0 document available below. The document is based on the updated VPAT template, created by the Information Technology Industry Council, in October 2017. Further improvements are planned in the coming year and an accessibility roadmap below provides details on those planned changes.
