Mercer | Mettl - Accessibility Statement

Accessibility

We are committed to providing an accessible interface for our test takers and client users for which we are approaching accessibility in two ways: compliance or standards based approach and real world accessibility.

Standards Based Approach

We are working towards making our test taking experience comply with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) which is a series of web accessibility guidelines published by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the main international standards organization for the Internet. These are a set of recommendations for making Web content more accessible, primarily for people with disabilities—but also for all user agents, including highly limited devices, such as mobile phones.

Real World Accessibility

We are continuously working towards ensuring that our services can be used in practice by a person with disabilities of various types by testing with devices such as the mainstream screen readers, voice control software and screen magnification technologies. Adding this element to our approach ensures the practicalities of using assistive technologies, or implementation of other adjustments which may be required while preserving the integrity and usability of our assessments. It is important to note that not all of our assessments are accessible to all assistive technologies or accommodations, today or in the future. For example, where the measurement of a core construct of an assessment would cause an undue burden or compromise to the intent of the assessment, we will not be able to support it.

For any questions, concerns or accessibility testing details, please reach out to us and we will be happy to answer them to the best of our abilities.
