Fort Hays State University has gone to some lengths to provide
meaningful and easily accessible pages on its Web server. Recently
with CJ Online to recast its Web pages and to provide templates
for departments. CJ Online worked with the FHSU Webmaster to make
the Web pages accessible to those with disabilities. Last year
the University adopted Macromedia’s Dreamweaver Web designer
software in part because that application automatically generates
Web pages that are more accessible to individuals with disabilities.
The Information Technology Advisory Board of the State of Kansas
has communicated the desire to increase accessibility for every
state agency Web site. Specifically, the official Web sites of
state agencies should provide access for persons who use screen
for persons who cannot hear audio content, or persons unable to
use a mouse. Most of you are probably aware of federal requirements
under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) which mandates
providing access to programs and services to all qualified individuals.
I would like to encourage everyone responsible for Web page design
to meet the goal of making FHSU Web pages accessible to those
