Our Commitment to Accessibility

Updated: August 2021

From test prep to professional exam review courses, Wiley Efficient Learning’s (WEL) personalized career tools help learners to grow no matter where they are on their career paths. We are committed to the goal of ensuring accessibility in our digital products and are actively investing in WEL to make it accessible for all.

What Makes Wiley Efficient Learning Accessible?

We measure accessibility according to the standards set by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA and Section 508.

We’ve partnered with TetraLogical, a leader in accessibility consultancy, to evaluate and regularly audit our product’s accessibility. We follow the born-accessible principle for all new feature/functionality releases and include accessibility requirements into all development efforts—content, product functionality, UX, training, etc.

A full summary of our product’s overall level of compliance is detailed in our Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT). Key support features include:

  • Screen Readers: For blind users or users who have low vision, WEL products have been tested and can be used with many third-party screen readers such as JAWS, NVDA, and VoiceOver.
  • Image Description: We employ the use of alternative text throughout WEL product features, such as lesson study guides, slides, questions, etc.
  • Closed Captions: For users with hearing disabilities, closed captioning is available for all videos.
  • Use of Color: Study guides, flashcards, questions, and slides have also been updated to support color contrast best practices.

WEL products also leverage several strategic partnerships with companies who are firmly committed to accessibility.
