Accessibility is the inclusive practice of removing barriers that prevent access to, or interaction with websites and electronic media, and the consumption of their content by people with permanent (e.g. one arm, blind, ADHD) or temporary (e.g. broken arm, cataract) disabilities and situational limitations (e.g. holding a baby, driving a car). All users have equal access to information and functionality when websites and other digital media are properly designed, developed, edited and maintained.
SUNY Oswego is committed to improving accessibility of web content and all related digital media, including audio and video.
