We have gathered all of the available accessibility-related services for ease of access on this page. Where noted, access to some of these resources requires MyCalStateLA login credentials.

Request a Website or App Accessibility Review

ITS Accessibility regularly monitors website and app accessibility. However, there may be occasions when website or app owners or developers require a comprehensive review of interface accessibility. When you request an interface review of your website or app, we will perform automated and manual tests and provide a comprehensive report on accessibility findings. Findings are presented in a standalone document that will help developers or content editors remediate accessibility barriers. To initiate a review, send an email to [email protected] and include the following information:

  • Website URL or app name and download location
  • Your contact information

Submit a Video for Captioning

There may be a charge-back cost associated with this service, and as such, your college approves all submissions. Academic Affairs covers the cost if you are captioning due to an accommodation request for a student enrolled in your course.

Submit video(s) for captioning. Access to this resource requires MyCalStateLA login credentials.

Submit an ICT Purchase Approval Request (ICT-PAR)

Before submitting an ICT-PAR, you should:

  • Recognize that accessibility is an essential requirement for your ICT product
  • Ask the vendor about their product's accessibility conformance
  • Ask the vendor for their latest VPAT or other accessibility conformance documentation and attach it to your request
  • Point vendors unfamiliar with accessibility to our vendor requirements page
  • Be prepared to find an alternative product if a vendor is unwilling to engage accessibility
  • Review the Pre-Approved ICT list for technology that does not require the ICT-PAR before purchase or acquisition.

Submit an ICT-PAR via this link. Access to this resource requires MyCalStateLA login credentials.

Submit a Document for Remediation

If you have a document with accessibility issues, we can remediate it. PDFs, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.

Install Assistive Technology at Home

Students, faculty, and staff are eligible for a home-use license of either JAWS, ZoomText, or ZoomText Fusion for use on a personal (non-university) computer. 
  • JAWS screen reader
  • ZoomText on-screen magnification
  • ZoomText Fusion hybrid magnification and screen reading

Go to the Freedom Scientific Home-Use Licensing webpage and enter your Cal State LA campus email address to install the above applications.

Submit an Equally Effective Alternate Access Plan (EEAAP)

When ICT products or services do not fully conform to Section 508 accessibility standards, an Equally Effective Alternative Access Plan (EEAAP) is developed to provide a pre-planned alternate access method that addresses known accessibility barriers. With an EEAAP, users who may be affected by known accessibility barriers will have a way to get relief and reduce the burden accessibility barriers may present. Creating an EEAAP is a purposeful process before you begin; review the EEAAP webpage for guidance.
