Blackboard measures and evaluates accessibility levels using two sets of standards: the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) issued by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act issued in the United States federal government.  The Learn software has been awarded Non-visual Accessibility Gold Certification by the National Federation of the Blind.
