University of California Web sites, Web applications, and hardware and software products should be accessible to everyone and particularly individuals with disabilities. A number of tools are available to assist developers, including testing tools, web developer tools, and color analyzers.

UC testing tool - AMP:
UC has acquired an enterprise accessibility testing tool, SSB BART Group's Accessibility Management Platform (AMP), to assist all UC personnel with accessibility testing and remediation.

How to access the AMP testing tool:

At most UC locations, including Hastings and LBNL, log into the AMP tool using single sign-on credentials.

At UCM, send an email to ampsupport to request access. The subject line should read "UC AMP Access Request." The email should contain the users full name, email address and phone number. Upon successful activation of the user account, the user will receive an email which will contain their AMP username and password.
