One of the things I love to do is to be constantly learning. This week the University of Phoenix had its faculty train on Ally on Blackboard Ultra for ADA compliance and to help improve student outcomes.
As time passes, more and more organizations are being required to meet the ADA compliance standards and at UOP, it is no different.
Very happy to learn Ally on Blackboard Ultra for ADA compliance.

Official WCAG documentation provides much better mechanisms for implementing accessibility into policy or law.
Guidelines for using this checklist:

As of January 2018, the technical requirements of Section 508 have changed to incorporate WCAG 2.0 A and AA success criteria. The checklist below is out-of-date and should not be used. You can instead refer to WebAIM's WCAG 2 checklist (webaim.org/standards/wcag/checklist). Note: The pass/fail criteria in this document represent an interpretation of Section 508 web standards. This checklist is NOT official Section 508 documentation.
