This year, Information and Technology Services has been implementing Deque Comply – a best-in-market, cloud-based enterprise accessibility scanner. The product, which is switching its name to Axe Monitor, is designed to help schools, colleges and units have a clearer understanding of the accessibility effectiveness of their websites, and to be able to assess how they are doing.
The ITS Axe Monitor project team has been working with individual website owners to configure the tool’s site scans by providing training, documentation and support.
“ITS is looking for the most effective ways to assist our unit partners both now and when opportunity, time and budgets permit to further improve their sites’ accessibility,” said Gonzalo Silverio, digital accessibility analyst senior in ITS.
“The goal is to improve the online experience for those visiting all institution websites, as U-M continues to pursue the objective of an increased overall accessible web presence.”
