New Guides and Recommendations

Universal Guidelines for All Digital Content

Regardless of your role in the university, if you create or maintain digital content or services, most of these criteria will apply to you.

Recommended for: Faculty, Content Editors, Developers, Researchers, Social Media Managers

Guidelines for Non-Website Platforms

When building content on third-party services, you often have less control over how your content and services are presented to your audience. These guides will help maximize your content accessibility with the tools you have available.

Guidelines for Documents

Documents adhere to the same accessibility guidelines as websites. It is highly recommended to review the General Guidelines before reading document-specific criteria.

Recommended for: Faculty, Researchers, Content Editors

Guidelines for Web Developers

If you are a web designer, web developer, or otherwise dig into the code of different digital services, these criteria are for you. Your templates, meta data, stylesheets, and custom controls play a big role in how easily assistive technology can parse digital content.
