Hi Maria,
I am currently doing an audit of SALT (saltmoney.org) against WCAG 2.0 level AA. It is not accessible as far as I can tell. For example forms missing labels and Flash videos that are completely invisible to JAWS and the keyboard.

If you would like you can send me a direct email and I can share my findings with you when I finish the audit.

Our school is considering working with American Student Assistance (ASA) www.asa.org and offering our students access to SALT (https://www.saltmoney.org/index.html) ? which is a program for helping student borrowers manage student loans (in short). We had some concerns about the accessibility and the organization sent us their Voluntary Products Accessibility Template (VPAT) but my supervisor is hoping we can find some people who have actual user experience with this program in regards to their accessibility ? so my question ? anyone here use this or look into it for use and what barriers if any have you faced?
