About the Accessibility SIG

The Accessibility SIG works with developers, product owners, and user interface designers to ensure principles of universal design are embedded in the FOLIO platform and apps from their inception.  In order to improve overall accessibility within FOLIO, the Accessibility SIG will

  • review design documents and prototypes
  • test working code for usability
  • raise access issues to assist with the remediation of processes
  • make recommendations to how accessibility and usability will be continuously addressed in the FOLIO development cycle.
