Product Accessibility Statement

An Accessibility Statement, also known as a Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT), explains how a product, tool, or technology fulfills key accessibility laws and guidelines. The VPAT may also highlight different accessibility features that the designers think are relevant to the user. For each tool or technology you plan to use in your course, copy the relevant accessibility statement link from the list of pages below, and add it to your syllabus or course site for student reference.
