What is Digital Accessibility?
Digital accessibility is the practice of ensuring that NYU websites, web applications, and digital content can be used by our community who have a diverse range of hearing, movement, sight or cognitive abilities.
NYU adheres to the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, Level AA standards. Anyone creating digital content at NYU is responsible for creating content that complies.
Who Benefits from Improved Accessibility?
While accessibility is necessary for some groups to use the web, it is beneficial for everyone. When creating digital content, keep in mind the different ways people perceive and process content.
Who is Responsible for Accessibility?
Accessibility is a shared concern for anyone in the NYU community who has a hand in creating, sharing, and publishing digital resources. Learn about who shares responsibility for digital accessibility.
