C4AT provides consulting services to organizations on digital accessibility.
The Center for Accessible Technology (C4AT) will work with a client and their internal teams (designers, developers, project managers, leadership) over time to assess and support ongoing accessibility issues, remediation, implementation. C4AT will also work with a client to develop a plan of action after assessing and prioritizing existing issues. Accessibility implementation, including remediation, can require iterative work and problem-solving over time, and during our work we will emphasize the importance of bringing accessibility into current mindsets and existing processes. Establishing a partnership to work through issues, build-capacity, and conduct maintenance reviews recognizes that accessibility work is an ongoing part of development.
