Phase 1 of the Ra11y plan  is complete! We are one (big) step closer to WCAG2 Certification.
What does this mean? It means that we completed a substantive review of the accessibility of the Sakai system by contracting out the assessment
to a reputable 3rd party, SSB Bart . Improving Sakai's accessibility means making it easier for people of all abilities to use our system. Our aim, as it always has been, is to make the system genuinely as accessible as possible, which directly impacts students, instructors, and other users in a positive way with a better user experience. We also wish to achieve WCAG 2 certification, which validates the community's hard work in this area. A double win!
The good news is that Sakai, as it stands now, is assessed at 74% compliant, which is not a bad starting point. Also we have gone painstakingly through the 453 identified issues and consolidated them into 51 Jiras  . We are off to a great start and we don't want to lose the momentum!
