  • Use AccVerify to check web pages for accessibility.
  • Supply a contact name and email address on your site for help with accessibility requests.
  • Begin a plan to make your site compliant in the future. In the plan, include the URL for your site, the type of problems found in the site, what training will be acquired and by whom, who will fix the problems, and the timeline for fixing problems. The final plan should be filed with your supervisor or as designated by your supervisor.
