Accessibility Testing Tools for Colleges

SortSite

Colleges should use this tool to test the college’s entire web site.  SortSite tests every web page on a site for accessibility as well as other web standards.  TCSG purchased this product and ran tests on all 22 college websites in February 2017.  Results of the test were provided to each college.  Colleges may contact Gabe Mathis at gmathis@tcsg.edu to request additional copies of the February 2017 report or to re-run the test for a more current compliance report.  Colleges may refer to SortSite’s website to learn more about the accessibility checker and/or test individual web pages.
