We are the accessibility-first publisher.

We learned early on that "essential for people with disabilities means useful for most," which is why we craft educational materials that are inclusive of all users and their abilities. Our team is well-versed in the accessibility criteria outlined in the WCAG. That's not to say we reduce accessibility to a checklist. We know accessibility is about ensuring real people with real impairments can access your publication and learn from it. We're here to guide you through the process of developing a title that is perceivable, understandable, and operable by all of your students.

Q: Who benefits from an accessible publication.

A: Everyone.


Inclusion as Best practice.

We won't settle for anything less than fully accessible for our GRTcontent publications

Great River Technologies follows a set of accessibility guidelines created by the World Wide Web Consortium called WCAG. The standards help guide web content producers in making their work more accessible to all, including those who require additional accommodations. Web content refers to the information in a web page, including text, images, sounds, code, and presentation. GRT follows these guidelines to ensure that all students can use and access our educational materials.
