Web Accessibility is the inclusive practice of making websites and web applications usable by people of all abilities, including people with disabilities. The goal is for all users have equal access to information and functionality. Our guidelines are based on global industry web standards created by the W3C and specifically WCAG 2.1 AA - Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
Our accessibility experts have experience in accessibility as it relates to academics, web development, and instructional design. We use a combination of web standards (W3C, WAI, WCAG), federal accessibility guidelines, and user testing with assistive technologies to assess the accessibility of MIT websites, applications, and courseware.
