Start Small

Starting with Accessibility

You may be wondering—where do I start?

We encourage you to Start Small.

Begin with one technique, like using headings, and learn how to incorporate that into all your materials. This will start you in the right direction for making content for a broad range of learning styles.

The following Top Five Lists give you some ideas on how to start adding eAccessibility into your electronic materials. Or, download and print our PDF file Top Five eAccessibility Tips Bookmarks.

If you are a UC faculty or staff member, please login to Blackboard and then access our eAccessibility Intro course (login required).

Visit our Best Practices page for accessibility checklists or our Tutorials page for how-to articles.

“Accessibility can seem overwhelming when you’re first starting out, but the Accessibility Network is here to make this more manageable. If we each just focus on one thing we can do right now to make our content more accessible, that’s a win. It will never be about making it perfect and that’s ok. Accessibility is about how to make it better."
