Draft Sakai 2.8 Accessibility Statement

Consistent with the goal to make Sakai the most innovative and powerful Collaboration and Learning Environment, the Sakai community with the support and encouragement of the Sakai Foundation will ensure that all of the core features of Sakai 2 are accessible and usable by the greatest number of potential users, including people with disabilities.

Ensuring that Sakai 2 has as few accessibility barriers as possible provides a rich and enjoyable user experience for all users. Therefore, we will continue developing the Sakai 2 core to meet or exceed the accessibility design principals found in recognized international standards. Our goal is to meet all of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level A and AA Success Criteria and to use emerging standards and best practice design techniques (such as the WAI-ARIA Suite) that support existing and emerging adaptive technologies.

Leveraging accessibility experts in the Sakai Community, all future development on tools intended for inclusion in Sakai 2's product core will undergo regular, documented usability and accessibility evaluations throughout the design and development process to ensure that it meets these goals.
