Website Design – Accessibility Support
Making University of Florida online resources accessible to everyone, regardless of physical limitation, is not only important to UF’s mission of teaching and learning–it’s the law. All UF websites must comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), specifically the federal Section 508 standards, which outline Web accessibility requirements.
UFIT’s Web Services group maintains an Accessibility Recommendations page, which is an excellent place to start when looking for easy coding and page design tips. A great training video called, “Web Accessibility Principles” is available on lynda.com, the 24/7 online training video site provided FREE to the UF community. Faculty and staff with questions about designing accessible sites may email Web Services.
