Throughout design and development processes, developers and maintainers should ensure website content is available to users of all abilities, by conforming to Level AA of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. Level AA conformity ensures a better experience for persons using assistive technology. In cases where conforming to Level AA is impossible, systems should conform with Level A to ensure minimum access to information.
A variety of testing methods should be employed to verify web accessibility.
See the Accessibility Tools and Resource List for testing resources.
Mobile applications should be testing using the native accessibility features for iOS and Android devices.
The Library should ensure IT products and services are accessible to individuals with disabilities by following the UC Guidelines for Purchasing IT Products or Services [PDF].
