WCAG compliance:
There are two main sets of standards for determining if a website is accessible:
1. Section 508: the VPAT or Voluntary Product Accessibility Template form is a voluntary statement of compliance to the Section 508 Standards.
2. WCAG 2.0: which states that products should be
• Perceivable, available to be seen or heard through assistive technologies
• Operable, available to all users through any available device and/or assistive technologies
• Understandable, content clearly seen or heard through any available technology or device
• Robust, content accessible via many types of technologies, assistive or otherwise.
Support for these accessibility standards is an ongoing initiative at HighWire and supported in the following ways.
1. At annual intervals HighWire audits its standard journal and book site products against section 508 Guidelines for website accessibility and WCAG 2.0 checklist (level A).
2. This audit informs the way we build new products going forward and test new products at launch.
3. Standard HighWire pages for our book and journal sites either “support” or “support with some exceptions” VPAT Section 1194.22 Web-based intranet and Internet information and applications where applicable.
4. Exceptions can occur with third-party services that are outside of our control or when designs and pages are created by non-HighWire staff.
5. HighWire accessibility audits are done at the product level and for that reason HighWire cannot certify individual publisher sites. (20/10/15)


COUNTER compliant usage reports are available through an administrator portal on the HighWire Press site.
