Digital Accessibility

Content Creators

Even content that is not created specifically for a digital context must follow digital accessibility guidelines if there's a chance it could be shared online. Content creators are responsible for ensuring their work complies with accessibility standards and for making updates to their content if accessibility issues are found.

Even if you don't "work in web," your content may end up online.

Anyone creating content that could potentially end up being shared in a digital context should be in trained in accessibility and perform their daily work with digital accessibility in mind. All content shared digitally by the university must comply with WCAG Level AA guidelines.
