We have an opening in our IT department for a Data Integration/ETL Systems Analyst<https://cu.taleo.net/careersection/2/jobdetail.ftl?job=18615&lang=en>. It is a highly technical position that has nothing to do with accessibility in particular. Of course everything should have something to do with accessibility!

Feel free to pass this on, especially to people with disabilities. Thank you.

Subject: Re: [Athen] Accessibility Rating


The only thing I have seen that comes close is the Benetech Global Certified Accessible (GCA) rating for EPUB 3 content from publishers.

They have a system that uses the automatic Accessibility Checker for EPUB (Ace by DAISY), and the Simple Manual Accessibility Reporting Tool (SMART) for the checking.

Their customized version of SMART has a rating system where a person gives a 0 tto 4 quality rating for amany, many items in a publication. They also provide guidance to the publisher on how to improve their score. Publishers must get at least 80% for that title to pass.
You can look at the tools by visiting:

Ace is free and open source, and SMART is free to use for a limited number of titles a month.

Subject: [Athen] Accessibility Rating

Hi Everyone,

Is anyone currently using or have a method in which they would rate the accessibility of an application? Perhaps a point system that would provide a percentage for accessibility. Thanks in advance!
