Web Accessibility Assessment and Reporting

Cryptzone’s Compliance Sheriff is the University of Iowa’s enterprise application for web accessibility testing. Compliance Sheriff evaluates websites and content against a library of checkpoints and generates reports to identify and correct accessibility issues in their sites..Compliance Sheriff indicators are complex, but can provide a useful perspective on accessibility. The following pages discuss the mechanics of using Compliance Sheriff.

As with any automated test, Compliance Sheriff reports do not represent the final word on a site’s accessibility. Compliance Sheriff is just one means by which you should measure the accessibility of your website or application. Keyboard operability, color contrast, dynamic content, scalability and other factors also contribute to the accessibility of a website or application, and should also be part of your testing protocol.

The IT Accessibility Group will host two Compliance Sheriff workshops in July 2017 for site accessibility liaisons.
