Web Accessibility

What is Web Accessibility?

Accessibility means removing barriers that can prevent people with disabilities from participating in life activities, including the use of services, products and information. More than ever, websites have become one of the most common means and in some cases the only means of providing services, products and information.

Does your website give disabled visitors the same access to information as everyone else?

Web Accessibility is responsible for evaluating and assisting the campus community with adherence to the CSUSB Information Technology Accessibility Policy. Information Technology Services (ITS) is also involved in the CSU Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI). If you're looking for the CSUSB Web Accessibility Standards and Guidelines, we have recently added them to our site in a convenient word format.

A special thank you to Candace Egan, from CSU Fresno, the Community of Academic Technology Staff (CATS), and the CSU Center for Distributed Learning for sharing the "Web Accessibility for All" video with CSUSB. This video was produced from funding from the TIGERS project.

This Lynda.com tutorial explains the crucial issue of web accessibility and how to apply standards to new and existing sites. A huge thank you to Lynda.com for sharing this resource.
