Accessible Versions of Pages Print Page

What are accessible versions of pages?

Accessible versions of pages strip out a lot of the column/box formatting on each page in order for screen readers & their users to know/read/navigate what's on the page.

Each box on a page will be displayed one after the other, left column first, then center, then right.

All of the content will be there - only the formatting of the page will be different.

See the example boxes in the right hand column for a screen shot of an accessible page and an accessible LibGuides CMS homepage (this Help site).


How do I get to the accessible versions?

If you're using a screen reader, you'll have a link at the top of the page that will bring you to the alternate version.

If you're not using a screen reader, you can click the Print Guide or Print Page links to get to the print version of the page, which is the accessible version.

Please use that version when running your page/guides through the WAVE tool.
