At Wiley, our mission has always been to empower our customers to achieve success in both their educational and professional careers. Accessible products ensure that all learners and educators have equal access to information, learning tools, and functionality regardless of ability or situation. Wiley is committed to ensuring accessibility in our digital products and is actively investing in Wiley Efficient Learning (WEL) product offerings.
In early 2017, the WEL development team began working with accessibility consultants to integrate accessibility into all areas of product development—content, UX, functionality, and training. We also continuously audit and remediate our products to improve upon usability. Key aspects of WEL products are designed to comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA in many ways:
WEL products also leverage several strategic partnerships with companies who are firmly committed to accessibility.
WEL’s VPAT and a detailed remediation roadmap can be supplied upon request via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wiley invests in the future of accessible content through ongoing research, development, and participation. We are a founding member of the AccessText Network and a member of the Association of American Publisher’s Critical Issues Task Force. Our colleagues also sit on multiple World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) steering committees and often present at industry conferences and webinars.
