Scanning and Assessments

The Information Technology Services (ITS) Applications - Web and Contract services organization provides an accessibility consultation and accessibility scanning tool: Monsido, to assist Web publishers, developers, and Web Portfolio Managers in the remediation of Web accessibility issues and to deliver high-level reports of a site's accessibility compliance with the statutory requirements in the Texas Administrative Code 206.70 Accessibility Standards (TAC 206.70), which references the U.S. Section 508 standards. Monsido provides an overall accessibility score and flags potential issues. Potential issues are ones that cannot be verified by a scanning tool and require manual review to determine whether adjustments are needed. Manual testing is a critical part of ensuring that a site is both accessible and usable by people with disabilities. A good sample checklist for manual reviews is available here.

  • These reports are submitted on a bimonthly basis to the Electronic Information Resources (EIR) Accessibility Coordinator, who disseminates them to deans and vice presidents and thus uses them to monitor accessibility compliance across all areas of the University.
  • Web portfolio managers should manually review the scores, including flagged potential issues, and make adjustments are necessary.



  • Administrator to provide accessibility guidance, assessment, and conduct reviews.
  • Enterprise-scanning with Monsido, a cloud based accessibility scanning platform.


Accessibility scanning and assessments are available at no cost to departments, faculty and staff.
