Usability and accessibility remediation efforts ensure existing systems provide equal access, satisfy compliance regulations and improve user experience. Things to consider for a when drafting remediation plan for accessibility:

  • Key decision makers
  • Remediation of existing systems’ known usability and accessibility issues
  • Future process improvements -- If the system will be enhanced or upgraded please see the Active Projects section of the Access IT CA website for more information and considerations.

Evaluating Incidents or Defects

Consider impact to users when evaluating accessibility defects/incidents for existing systems:

  • Does the defect//incident make the system functionality, website or web page unusable for the user?
  • Does the defect/incident preclude the system from providing comparable access to services (takes longer to use, less rich experience)?
  • Does the affected system functionality provide an important service that the user is required or expected to use (file taxes, obtain emergency services)?
