Web Accessibility Complaint Investigation and Resolution Process

If an individual with a disability encounters an issue with a website or web application developed or owned by Wilkinson Public Library, the individual may report the barrier via a webform, phone, email, or mail. Once a report is made, the following steps are taken:

Upon receipt of an accessibility complaint or barrier report, the Compliance Officer will:

  • Investigate the issue and provide a preliminary response to the reporting individual within 48 business hours of receiving the complaint.

If an accessibility issue is discovered within the context of the supported assistive technologies at WPL, the Compliance Officer will, in consultation with the appropriate staff and contractors:

  • Define the existing accessibility issue and acceptance criteria necessary to resolve the issue;
  • Specify the level of priority for resolving the accessibility issue and identify a timeline for resolution.

Following the receipt of the complaint, the Compliance Officer will respond to the reporting individual, if appropriate, and inform the individual as to the timeline for resolution.

The Compliance Officer will communicate with the reporting individual to determine if an alternate access solution is necessary while the accessibility issue is resolved.

Following the resolution and/or conclusion of the accessibility issue, the Compliance Officer will identify the date at which the accessibility issue was completed.
