Accessibility Statement for MATLAB - Q3 2023
MathWorks is committed to improving the accessibility of its software products for users with disabilities to conform with WCAG 2.1 Level A and AA.
Given the advances in accessibility for the web, we are focusing first on increasing the accessibility of MATLAB® Online™.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) define requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. MATLAB Online is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 Level A and AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the application do not fully conform to the accessibility standard. For more details on WCAG compliance of MATLAB Online and other products, refer to the MathWorks VPATs.
