Recommended Guidelines

Following these guidelines will add functionality and usability for all users, including users of assistive technology.

Contact Information

All new and redesigned web pages must be in compliance with the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Level AA, and must indicate in plain text a method of contact for users with disabilities having trouble accessing content within the site. The contact information shall include a phone number and/or e-mail address that put the user in touch with the person(s) responsible for the content and function of the page.

  1. The goal is that such person(s) responsible for the content and function of the page reply to the inquiry within one business day of its dispatch.
  2. This plain text notice will appear in a consistent form and location on each web page.
  3. Current WordPress templates include an "Accessibility" link in the footer pointing to the University's Accessible Syracuse web page.
