Digital Accessibility

Creating and maintaining accessible websites, applications and digital assets requires collaboration between designers, developers, content providers and, in some cases, vendors. In order to ensure equal access to information for all people, digital content managers should be familiar with web accessibility standards and principles. For more detailed information, view our web accessibility assessment resources for web content creators, developers and designers and resources for course instructors, or visit the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 website.
