Making WashU websites and digital information accessible to everyone is an important part of embracing diversity and including every member of our community.

Web accessibility refers to making certain that websites and all information we post to the internet is usable for people with disabilities that impact their access to the internet. This includes visual, auditory, physical, speech, cognitive and neurological disabilities. Making our web content accessible to people with disabilities also benefits others, including those with changing abilities because of aging or those in temporary situations that impede their ease of accessing web content.

The WashU Web Accessibility Users Group meets to share knowledge about standards and best practices for creating and supporting web-based content that’s accessible to people with disabilities and those using assistive technologies.
