Accessible Computing & Inclusivity in the AIBS SCORES Platform

AIBS cares about accessible computing and inclusivity.

So after a recent project to assure accessibility, users of AIBS’s SCORES peer review software platform who need more accessibility can now more reliably navigate the applications with a screen reader, or using only a keyboard.

And, each application documents how it meets the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines – used by both the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act to define their requirements.

This allows all our users to understand, in advance, how we support their needs. These efforts are in line with AIBS’s strong commitment to increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the biological sciences.
