UCOP IT Accessibility Program

Maybe it's a website, a video, an application, or a training course. If you get to it from a computer, phone, or other electronic device, it needs to be accessible to people with disabilities. To understand the issues, watch this video about students with disabilities.

For students, employees, the general public – technology can be the great equalizer, letting them participate in and contribute to all kinds of programs, activities, jobs, classes... But if the technology isn’t accessible, they’re shut out.

The UCOP IT Accessibility Work Group helps UCOP departments ensure that IT components of their initiatives are accessible. For more information, read the UCOP IT Accessibility Program description (PDF).
