Accessibility statement

For the OA.Report website
This accessibility statement applies to the present OA.Report website and excludes other product websites (OAbutton.org, InstantILL.org, ShareYourPaper.org), our main website, and our blog.
This website is run by OA.Works. Our organization is committed to accessibility and inclusivity for all people with disabilities. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:
  • Zoom in up to 200% without the text spilling off the screen.
  • Navigate most of the website using just a keyboard.
  • Navigate most of the website using speech recognition software.
  • Listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver).
We’ve also made the website text easy to understand using Simple English (US).
We continue to improve the website’s accessibility and performance for as many devices as possible. We do not, however, support Internet Explorer.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
