Home / Why Us / Accesibility Statement
Klett World Languages is committed to providing accessible materials to the widest possible audience, both in print and digital form.
What we’re doing
We’re actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our company’s website, learning platform, and social media channels.
In doing so, we adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines, such as those established in Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and W3C of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1).
Our efforts are ongoing as we work to implement the relevant improvements to meet WCAG 2.1 A/AA guidelines over time.
Our digital platform offers, among other things:
● Captions and audio description for pre-recorded media
● Readily available audio control
● Consistent navigation and identification
● Text alternative for non-text content that serves the equivalent purpose
● Contrast ratio of at least 5:1
● Zoom without loss of content or function
● Headings and labels describing the topic or purpose
● Low or no background audio
We have a dedicated accessibility team
As part of our commitment to accessibility, we’ve created a team which constantly monitors the accessibility of our print and digital materials. This team provides in-house training to ensure our staff is up-to-date with the latest accessibility developments.
Our accessibility team provides – free of charge – a variety of formats, such as accessible PDFs, DOCX Files or Rich Text Format, and media transcripts to school districts or colleges that need accessible materials for their students. For more details on this, please email us at email@example.com.
Our portfolio is available at NIMAC
Klett World Languages portfolio is also available at the National Instructional Materials Access Center (NIMAC), a federally-funded, searchable online file repository of print textbook content in the XML-based NIMAS (National Instructional Materials Accessibility Standard) format. Authorized users can download these files to create specialized formats like braille, large-print, digital, or audio books.
Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT)
We have also created a Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) for our online platform. If you’re a qualified instructor or an administrator and would like to see our VPAT, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
