Project Details

What We Need
  • A list of the common issues along with the prioritization of both severity and impact of the accessibility issues found
  • List of areas that do not meet the Section 508, ADA, WCAG 2.0 guidelines
  • Specific recommendations to improve product accessibility their priority level (low, medium, and high priority)
  • Estimated time needed to fix current compliance issues
Additional Details

We are primarily interested in finding the areas of our website that are not longer accessible as we have migrated to a new platform. A list of the issues with priority level would be greatly helpful.

What We Have In Place
  • Our website has a front-end and back-end, we are currently concerned with the front-end of the website. It is entirely accessible without logging in. Everything can be navigated to via ostem.org, https://ostem.org.
    The main navigation is through the menu bars and any sub-menus on the pages.

    Our overall goal is to have 100% compliance as it is important to our organization.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,212 , allowing us to spend more resources and time on our mentorship platform as that has been a highly requested feature and allow extra funds to go towards our scholarship program for LGBTQ+ STEM people.

One of our organization's core values is accessibility and ensuring accessibility for all groups. With the recent platform migration, we are no longer meeting that core value and that is something we are determined to fix.
