PopeTech Enterprise-wide Web Accessibility Scanning Tool
ITS Accessibility utilizes PopeTech to provide enterprise-wide Accessibility automated scans. PopeTech uses the same user-friendly technology in the WebAIM WAVE single-page scanning tool, one of the most used accessibility testing engines in the world. All Drupal content editors have access to PopeTech, but we encourage any campus member interested in requesting a PopeTech account to request PopeTech access by emailing us.

Editoria11y Plug-in for Drupal CMS
Editoria11y ("editorial accessibility") is a user-friendly web accessibility tool that runs automatically in our Drupal CMS. Note that Editoria11y does not check while you are editing a campus webpage. However, when looking at a page you have content editor access to, Editoria11y will alert you to accessibility barriers and suggest items requiring manual verification.
