Websites: Make Them Accessible to Everyone
Is your website as accessible and inclusive as it should be for all your potential audiences? The University of California is committed to providing an electronic environment that is accessible to everyone, including individuals with disabilities.
To make it easier for you to ensure your messages are inclusive, a working group of the systemwide Electronic Accessibility Leadership Team (http://www.ucop.edu/irc/ealt/welcome.html) maintains a UC web accessibility site for web developers, content developers, and writers and editors.
In addition to guidelines for these audiences, the Website has an array of useful tips, tools and techniques to help you make your site accessible. The Website includes sections on guiding principles, recommended standards, technical standards, finding assistance on your campus, training opportunities for developers, other resources, UC’s Electronic Resources policy, and a link to the initiative to promote electronic accessibility throughout the University of California.
Do you want to learn more? UC employees may join a Universitywide e-mail discussion list of technical and other UC personnel interested in IT accessibility issues. To join the list (firstname.lastname@example.org), send an e-mail to Yvonne Tevis.
