The National Bureau of Economic Research (“NBER”) has an ongoing commitment to achieving the highest levels of satisfaction for users of NBER’s websites (the “Websites”). As part of these efforts, NBER is dedicated to offering full and equal enjoyment of its Websites to users with disabilities.
To assist in achieving the aforementioned accessibility goals with respect to the Websites, NBER has committed to the Websites being designed, developed, and operated in accordance with generally recognized and accepted guidelines and/or standards for website accessibility (the “Standards”). While these Standards may change and/or evolve over time, they are currently at least the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 at Levels A and AA (“WCAG 2.1”)1.
NBER’s commitment to website accessibility will be further implemented over time with the additional guidance of both counsel and an independent third-party accessibility expert (“Web Accessibility Consultant”). This website development process will also bring the Websites into further conformance with the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board. The Websites will be tested on a periodic basis with assistive technology such as screen readers and screen magnifiers, and by users with disabilities who use these technologies.
Below are some of the steps NBER is taking under its website accessibility policy:
Accessibility Needs Assessment/Recommendations
Voluntary Product Accessibility Statement
Ongoing Accessibility Testing and Evaluation
