Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can use the web. More specifically, web accessibility means that people with disabilities can perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with the web, and that they can contribute to the web. Web accessibility also benefits others, including older people with changing abilities due to aging.

Web accessibility encompasses all disabilities that affect access to the web, including visual, auditory, physical, speech, cognitive, and neurological disabilities. The document "How People with Disabilities Use the Web" describes how different disabilities affect web use and includes scenarios of people with disabilities using the web.

Our website is often the first thing people see, thus it is imperative we make our web pages available to everyone!  We are working to update our page templates to ensure they are accessible, and the office of Disability Support Services has provided some links to help verify accessibility.  We are also here to assist with any questions you might have about your web pages and accessibility.
