Black Hawk X X
Content-rich web sites like the one developed here
with SCT Luminus have difficulty in providing users
with disabilities an alternative rendition of the site.
Most department and faculty Web pages linked from
our primary web site are accessible already.
Chicago X X X
The City Colleges of Chicago have been encouraging
our webmasters to use accessibility guidelines for the
last five years. These guidelines have grown from
basic “ALT” tag recommendations to the list of
detailed guidelines in the current report. An external
reviewer identified the following concerns about our
website -- lack of unique Page Titles and the ability to
skip repeated navigation links
Danville X X X X
The initial evaluation revealed that all of the top 25
most utilized web pages which are managed by the
Director of Computer & Network Services were
deemed accessible by the HTML validator tool. A
challenge remains for DACC to ensure that same high
level of compliance/accessibility for web pages that
are managed by personnel outside of that central
office (e.g. financial aid department web pages, etc.,
and several others who manage their own web
DuPage X X
Twelve out of 27 website pages were fully compliant.
Further improvements are planned.
Elgin X X X
The W3C guidelines and Validator were used to
review the content. A detailed table is provided in the
report listing errors by page. While the number of
errors is about the average for most websites, Elgin
Community College’s goal is to strive for 0 errors.
Harper X X Thirty-one of 42 checkpoints were in compliance
Heartland current goal goal X
Heartland Community College attempts, whenever
possible, to exceed the basic electronic requirements
identified in SEC 508 Standard §1194.22. At the
onset of the redesign project, the Web team
determined that all newly created pages must contain
valid HTML/XHTML and CSS. The same cannot be
said for the existing pages.
