Developing Accessible Websites

“There are only four types of disability that relate to web access: visual, hearing, motor, and cognitive. Many fixes for these groups are both simple and free.”

—Ian Hamilton, “A Simple Introduction to Web Accessibility,” Creative Bloq

UT has adopted the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), version 2.0. All new or redesigned websites launched after August 1, 2015, should meet the level A and level AA requirements set forth by the WCAG.

Websites launched before August 1, 2015, should be evaluated for WCAG compliance and brought into compliance as soon as possible.
