How does the Common App address accessibility?
The Common App is committed to delivering an accessible application for all students. We are continually working to improve our application's accessibility by adopting the best practices and standards defined by Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act and the latest Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) wherever possible.
We aim to create and improve accessibility features for students with vision impairments, limited movement, photosensitivity, and certain accommodations for learning disabilities and cognitive limitations.
Our team uses tools such as aXe by Deque, NVDA by NVAccess, built-in tools like MacOS Voiceover, and rigorous manual testing to verify and improve the accessibility of our application.
The Common App is dedicated to assisting students who may encounter accessibility issues within the system. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, phone number or email address, and a description of your need.
