  • Completing annual accessibility audits conducted by a qualified third party
  • Testing our platforms with both JAWS and NVDA
  • Conducting usability studies with visually- and physically-impaired users
  • Working directly with institutions and their users to address their concerns
  • Providing accessibility guides for products like EBSCOhost and EBSCO eBooks
