Howdy y’all!

Web accessibility is achieved when all users regardless of disability can obtain the same information and perform the same functions. To help you navigate the waters of creating accessible web content, we consolidated an on- and off-campus list of accessibility resources.

OU Campus Accessibility Resources:

Web Communications, Marketing and New Media

Disability Resource Center

  • To encourage full participation for students with disabilities and help ensure equal educational opportunity, the Disability Resource Center provides a variety of support resources, many of which have been developed in response to expressed student needs. Visit the DRC website here.

Please keep in mind that just as it is the responsibility of the website owners, colleges, and departments to have accurate web content, it is the responsibility of the website owners to make sure web content is accessible. Our office is here to answer your questions and provide you with resources.

If you have additional recommendations or resources, please share it with others by adding a comment below.

    If you have Firefox this is a useful, quick screen reader simulator plugin to use when developing or maintaining your site. – no big frills, though, but gives a straightforward idea.

    I receive the error: “video has been removed by user”.

    Hey Robert! It should be working now! Thanks for bringing that to our attention.

    The WebComm office no longer maintains a JAWs license because other equivalent resources are available for free. VoiceOver, which is automatically installed on Mac OS X, is one of many great, free solutions for accessibility testing. If you need assistance for accessibility testing, send us an email.

    Darcy from DRC just let me know about this resource. They offer free webinars about JAWS use. Hope it helps!
