Web Accessibility Standards
The UXO supports the University in its efforts to ensure Information Communication Technology is fair and inclusive to users of all abilities. To that end we use the guiding principles of Universal Design and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Level AA.
Universal Design principles seek to create accessible experiences in the built environment. The UXO looks for ways to adapt and integrate those principles into interface design.
Information technology solutions should be:
- Simple and intuitive
- Error tolerant
- Require minimal physical effort
- Supportive of adequate size and space
WCAG 2.0 Level AA
The World Wide Web Consortium's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines offer editors, designers and developers objective criteria for designing accessible digital experiences.
