Accessibility - Our Website & Our College

How are we doing with accessibility?


TIP: All modern Internet browser software, now respond to the convenient keyboard Magnification shortcut, Ctrl + to INCREASE size, or Ctrl - to DECREASE size. Then use your “arrow keys” to easily scroll around within the magnified window.

NOTE: These convenient shortcuts work in all modern browsers … and even in other software programs! (a great tip for faculty use in the classroom to zoom into details on the screen.)

We strive to make our college and our website as widely accessible as possible.

To this aim, our website:

  1. Prompts our content editors to provide “alt tags” for all images added
  2. The majority of the videos found on our site now have custom “closed captions” (CC) available for overlaying in the YouTube player interface.
  3. Uses web standards for dividing presentation from content.
  4. Uses menus with mouse-over tips to aid in navigation.
