Literatum fully supports accessibility. Generally, Atypon complies with the AA level of conformance for accessibility presented by the W3C, and can be set up to comply with AAA. The level of accessibility is dependent on each publisher's site design and architecture. Support for advanced accessibility features is possible, depending on the publisher providing additional content, such as audio versions, alternate text, etc. Literatum fully supports 508 and other accessibility compliance standards, but given the level of control publishers have over the front end via Page Builder, accessibility compliance is a shared responsibility between Atypon and the publisher. (They do not have a public statement.)
