Elizabeth - In regard to your comment about tagging being hit or miss.....Yes! Although, we have figured out the following: WINDOWS - when you "save as PDF", the PDF file will only have H1 tags if a title placeholder from a master is used. Even if you change the font to the calibri - Headings option, ...

It is important for our using departments to document how they are going to communicate to the users that the resource is not accessible and how they should reach out for assistance.

Because neither the institution nor the vendor can control every end-users's display, I believe the standard must be based on the code. From a browser, if you right-click on the webpage and select 'inspect', then click on the first button in the upper menu and hover over the page element, it will show ...

Cliff, That response from Microsoft doesn't make any sense to me because it was reporting properly last week. They made a change and it broke.
