Hi Scott & Co-

This question came up for us a couple weeks ago and in the interim we did some in-house testing of the Common App website and online application process. We did not find it screen-reader friendly at all. I’d be very interested to hear if anyone else has done any testing recently. Anyone can sign up for a test student-type account with them so it’s easy to walk through the process.

They DO offer accessible PDF’s as an alternative, they sent us a sample and they tested very well.
