At American Board of Education (ABE), our mission is to increase access to high-quality education for everyone, everywhere – including learners with disabilities. We seek to understand and respect the unique needs and perspectives of our students and partners, and we value every learner. Accordingly, we are committed to ensuring that is accessible to individuals with disabilities and that our platform permits content providers to develop and post accessible content. To meet this goal, we are committed to the following:

  • We aim to conform with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines ("WCAG") 2.1 AA, published by the World Wide Web Consortium, and provide course authoring tools that permit content providers to post course content that conforms with WCAG 2.1 AA. We verify conformance through a combination of manual code inspection, automated testing using industry-recognized tools, compatibility testing using the most widely used accessibility support tools and, from time to time, review by an independent website accessibility consultant.
  • We prioritize accessibility bug fixes to ensure they are remedied with the same level of priority as any other equivalent loss of function for individuals without disabilities.
  • We link to this policy from the homepage and distribute it to content providers and relevant ABE employees and contractors.
  • We require that all course videos include timed captions and that all content providers comply with their independent obligations under applicable accessibility laws, in an effort to help ensure that course content posted on will meet a wide variety of requirements of learners with disabilities. To assist content providers in their efforts, we publish and distribute Accessibility Best Practices Guidance for Content Providers.
  • We provide annual training to ABE employees and relevant contractors on ensuring educationboard.usconforms with WCAG 2.1 AA.
  • We welcome accessibility-related feedback, including requests for accommodation, through, which is managed by the webmaster of the institute.
