What is Compliance Deputy?
Compliance Deputy is a newly developed browser-based solution that allows developers and content creators to evaluate and repair accessibility errors before publishing them. Compliance Deputy was developed by Cyxtera in collaboration with the CSU ATI and the Universal Design Center (UDC). It measures compliance using the CSU ATI Accessibility Requirements (DOCX) and the UDC Web Accessibility Criteria. It works best in the Chrome browser. Contact UDC about Internet Explorer or Firefox; Safari is coming soon.
