Be proactive. Why pay the price for non-compliance?

Lawsuits against companies not accommodating people with disabilities are on the rise. It helps to have someone guide you through the complex maze of accessible communications regulations and standards. T-Base helps you keep up with your legal obligations–learn about accessibility legislation across a variety of industries, including financial services and healthcare insurance.

Security in accessible standardized testing

Standardized tests, exams and report cards for schools, school boards and ministries or departments of education must be transcribed into alternate formats for students who are blind or low vision. What you might not know:  security plays an important role in this process.
