Accessibility Statement for Marketplace Simulations

Accessibility Statement for Marketplace® Simulations

Our Commitment

At Marketplace® Simulations, we are fully committed to providing a rewarding experience for all students where they can easily, equally, and independently engage with our simulations. Our development team makes a continual effort to revise and maintain the accessibility of all Marketplace products. We have thoroughly tested our simulation and collaborated with the disabled community to ensure a good experience.

Standards Compliance

Our conformance goal is level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities.

Simulations designed by Marketplace are made using standards compliant HTML and CSS code, so our product will be compliant on any browser. If you would like to see full details on how we achieve compliance, view our completed Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT).

Known Accessibility Issues

Marketplace Simulations are designed to meet current 508 standards; however, we are aware of some products and supplementary content that still needs to be addressed. We are currently working to improve the accessibility of our products by the below timeline. We are also in the process of upgrading our conformance goal to WCAG 2.1 AA.
