Accessibility Statement for MATLAB® - Q1 2021

MathWorks is committed to improving the accessibility of its software products for users with disabilities.

Given the advances in accessibility for the web, we are focusing first on increasing the accessibility of MATLAB Online.

Conformance status

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.
