Accessibility Guidelines

Web accessibility focuses on the issues of supplying disabled users of the Internet equal access and ability to view all information on the World Wide Web.  When sites are designed following accessibility guidelines, all users will have equal access to the content and functionality. Web accessibility guidelines are in place to address the following needs:

  • Visual impairments
  • Motor and Mobility
  • Auditory disabilities
  • Seizures
  • Cognitive and Intellectual disabilities

A full description of web accessibility can be reviewed on the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative website.
