The Public Knowledge Project (PKP) is committed to providing a user experience that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To achieve this, a new OJS Default Theme was developed by PKP for OJS 3.3 and higher, and was audited for accessibility barriers.
PKP is actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of the OJS software and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines (and to exceed the minimum standard where we can). Regularly scheduled audits of its software, with users, ensures issues are identified and resolved in a timely manner.
PKP endeavors to conform to level AA of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly for all people.
WCAG guidelines are an internationally recognized benchmark for the building of accessible web sites.
PKP’s Accessibility Statement is published in four languages: English, French, Spanish and Portuguese.Click here to read the original press release.
