The RED, ORANGE, or GREEN Accessibility score icons indicate how accessible your file is and the likelihood that it could pose a potential access issue for a student with a disability.

Icon Color Level of Accessibility Severity Level Meaning
green accessibility score icon 100% Perfect! Great job! Perfect!
off green accessibility score icon 67% – 99% Minor Issues This file is mostly accessible, but still has minor issues
orange accessibility score icon 34% – 66% Major Issues The file is inaccessible! It has issues that would likely cause issues for some students who use assistive technology.
red accessibility score icon 0% – 33% Severe Issues The file is inaccessible! It will be very difficult for students who use assistive technologies to access the content in this file.


NOTE: RED and ORANGE icons mean that students with disabilities, especially those who use assistive technologies (e.g., blind/low vision, keyboard only users) and/or those with learning/cognitive challenges (e.g., dyslexia), will find it difficult to access the content in those images and documents.
