Knewton believes that every student should receive a high-quality education tailored to her or his needs. We are committed to ensuring that the alta solutions are fully accessible to all learners.

Knewton’s alta product is compliant with the WCAG 2.0 Level AA Success Criteria and the U.S. Access Board’s Section 508 Standards. We’ve partnered with Level Access, a leader in evaluating digital accessibility solutions, to evaluate and regularly audit our product’s accessibility and guide us in our accessibility remediation efforts.
