Web Accessibility

What is Web Accessibility ?

Web Accessibility refers to implementation of best practices, universal design principles and criteria to comply with Section 508 and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0) in order to eliminate barriers that prevent any user from interacting and utilizing all that is offered in a webpage.

 Web Accessibility Evaluation

Web evaluations are conducted to report problems regarding the accessibility and usability of web applications within the CSUF web environment. Testing is done on individual department web sites, vendor resources, or other sites that would be directed to use by the Campus community.  All Campus areas are trained on compliance standards.

The Compliance Sheriff Checkpoints created based on the CSU ATI Accessibility Requirements and Compliance Sheriff Accessibility Module are used to conduct regular tests within the CSUF web domain. Additional manual testing is conducted as needed based on the findings.

To report accessibility or usability problems, please contact the webpage owner for a faster response.  You may also let us know by using the Report an ATI issue link on this page. We value the insights and ideas you may share as a visitor to these web pages.
