Web Accessibility Training
The University is committed to ensuring that all individuals enjoy a fully accessible living and learning environment. To meet this commitment, all UAlbany web pages are being redesigned to meet the standards of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA, and the Web Accessibility Initiative Accessible Rich Internet Applications Suite (WAI-ARIA) 1.0 for web content. An initial step in this effort is for senior leadership, deans, directors, chairs, other management staff and all employees responsible for web content to complete an online training module on web accessibility. The training, which must be completed by January 31, 2018, can be accessed here. More information is available on the University's Web Accessibility website.
