Hello all,
I thought this resource may be of interest.
Library E-Resource Accessibility - Testing<https://www.btaa.org/library/accessibility/library-e-resource-accessibility--testing>
The Big Ten Academic Alliance Libraries fund third-party accessibility evaluations for select vendor e-resources based upon recommendations from the member libraries and the platforms that the majority of the consortium owns or is considering for purchase. Evaluations, along with any responses provided by vendors, are below. The program provides vendors with a report and the opportunity to improve the accessibility of their products while giving members of the library community information about the accessibility of specific library e-resources. Vendors may supply responses to the test results by contacting the Big Ten Academic Alliance<mailto:robert.vanrennes at btaa.org>.
