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
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a fairly well-designed website with wordpress cms, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have enthusiasm, a passion for accessibility, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,212 , allowing us to reallocate those funds to improving physical access on-site.

We are finishing up a digital engagement strategy and while we have worked continuously to make the museum more accessible on-site, making our website and social media pages accessible has usually been an after thought. This will widen our audience extensively. As the only resource of this kind in the USA, this will enable those with access challenges to explore Indigenous Australian art!
