Creating Accessible Websites

Electronic materials (text, images, video, etc.) created for websites require certain elements to make those materials accessible to individuals with disabilities, including (but not limited to) people with hearing, mobility, cognitive or visual impairments.

By keeping accessibility in mind when creating websites from the beginning, you will be successful in making accessible electronic content. 

Included on this page is a basic list to check for eAccessibility in your electronic files. For a more comprehensive list, please visit our Best Practices page.

"As a part of the central communications team, I see the wide reach of the UC website. It is not only a robust marketing tool, but also a hub of information for the university community, and the best opportunity to showcase our leadership in accessibility and inclusivity. It is exciting to part of a university working hard to ensure one equal and inclusive digital experience."
