Accessibility

UNC-Chapel Hill is committed to providing a great experience for site users. Nothing in design or programming should impede the ability of users to navigate and access content. This page includes tips for using the site, resources for web developers and the campus community and a link for reporting digital access issues.

Tools for Campus Web Developers

While creating websites, developers at Carolina should adopt web standards established by the Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C) for online content creation. Carolina’s site, www.unc.edu, was built and tested to W3C’s WCAG 2.0 level A guidelines. For more information, consult the W3C’s page on accessibility.

Web developers may begin with applications and tools listed by Carolina’s Digital Access Initiative, which includes resources for video introduction, design guidelines and accessibility checkers.

 

Campus Resources

The offices of Accessibility Services and Equal Opportunity/ADA Office offer other resources for the Carolina Community, such as information on accommodations. The offices are working with a Digital Access Advisory Team on a Digital Access Initiative to support accessibility of digital content, resources and technology.
