ACLS Humanities E-Book has just launched a new collection interface that will offer better navigability, including improvements in accessibility for users with disabilities. The revised interface also features a more integrated design, with a consistent appearance and functionality across the entire HEB website. We hope that this will result in a better user experience for our readers.
We’re especially pleased to report that most features of the collection now allow for navigation by standard automatic readers and a variety of assistive technologies. The new HEB interface conforms to W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, Conformance Level A, which means that the collection meets all Level A Success Criteria and contains no absolute barriers to access. We will continue to periodically review and make improvements to our web interface in an effort to ensure that all users are able to make the most of our resource.
