Mavs Open Press will complete an accessibility evaluation and provide a pass/fail rating for the OER’s Organization, Images, Tables, Hyperlinks, Multimedia, STEM Content, Font, Color Contrast, and Interactive Elements with additional notes about the evaluation. Accessibility issues and recommendations for improvement will be shared with OER authors prior to publication. Though all accessibility issues do not have to be addressed prior to publication, authors should aim to revise inaccessible content in another iteration of the OER or work with the Mavs Open Press to develop a workaround to be included in the book’s front matter with the accessibility statement.
