The University of Alabama encourages individuals with disabilities to participate in our many programs and activities, and is committed to ensuring that our facilities and the information, services, courses, and technology that we provide are inclusive and accessible in accordance with applicable law.
Consistent with this commitment, the University has launched an accessibility initiative to provide our technology users, including those with disabilities, a functional and accessible technology experience with our web presence and our instructional and emerging technologies. We hope this website provides you with valuable resources regarding our accessibility and accommodation efforts.
To further this initiative, the UA administration and UA Web professionals are making progress to meet World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, or WCAG 2.0 AA, over the next four years. To begin this process, UA will audit existing Web materials to help Web teams determine appropriate timelines and resources needed to reach WCAG 2.0 AA. This auditing and education process has begun and more information will be shared, including availability of tools and other resources, to help UA Web teams meet these guidelines. Questions about this initiative should be sent to Dr. Rachel Thompson, director of emerging technology and accessibility, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (205) 348-0216.
