NYU, like most organizations, has moved most if not all of its resources to the Web. Now it is important for us to ensure that these resources are fully available to those inside and outside of our community with a broad range of abilities.
Technical training is available - both online and in person - to ensure that you know how to develop an accessible website or web application. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
NYU aims to procure web applications and services that are compliant with NYU's accessibility policy and standards (WCAG 2.0 AA). NYU IT, Procurement, and the Office of General Counsel work together to help you accomplish this action.
NYU has found that some vendors know little about accessibility while others are very far along in making their applications fully compliant. The Digital Accessibility team can assist you with the conversations you will have with vendors especially regarding accessibility levels and roadmaps for accessibility. We have successfully worked with several vendors to help them bring their products into compliance.
Tell the Digital Accessibility team early if you wish to purchase web services or a web application so we can help you assess its accessibility compliance.
You can also do a quick check on the accessibility of a web application.
