Pearson is committed to providing barrier-free, accessible learning in introductory-level Computer Concepts and Microsoft Office Applications courseware. MyITLab for Office 2013 has been re-designed from the ground-up to: a) provide the most accessible IT experience we have found to be available on the market at this time; and b) include a road-map for continued accessibility enhancements to meet Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Version 2.0 (WCAG 2.0). To meet these state-of-the-art standards, the MyITLab team partnered with a leading accessibility consultant, specializing in educational braille production and accessibility tools for standardized testing, for product design, development, and quality assurance.
As MyITLab for Office 2013 is a complete digital solution for Computer Concepts and Office Applications training and assessment, Pearson suggests that an accessibility compliance review start by examining the core activities and features that define the user experience.
Full educator-view compatibility is forthcoming.
Pearson, the MyITLab Team, and Pearson’s Accessibility Consultant plan to develop additional new features to further reduce, and finally eliminate, accessibility barriers due to disability or condition. We welcome feedback from students and educators regarding MyITLab accessibility features as an important part of a complete digital solution for IT training and assessment.
