As you may know, the Artstor platform recently underwent a major platform transition. With the July 2017 platform update, we began making the site more functional for users with disabilities.  Improvements include:

  • Titles that provide alt text for items
  • Removal of double clicking to open an item
  • Language declaration in the Artstor Digital Library’s source code (English) to help screen readers navigate the site
  • The website is now responsive, meaning users can easily adjust font size and color/contrast settings on most devices.

We recently performed a full WCAG 2.0 audit (which encompasses the new Section 508 standards), have made the VPAT 2.0 document available below. The document is based on the updated VPAT template, created by the  Information Technology Industry Council, in October 2017. Further improvements are planned in the coming year and an accessibility roadmap below provides details on those planned changes. Please email support@artstor.org with any questions or concerns.
