Accessibility of University web pages

Designing for accessibility is a vital part of web design. There are several reasons for accessible design, including avoiding discrimination, differences between browsers, and improving search engine ranking. The Disability Discrimination Act makes it a legal requirement for websites to be usable regardless of disability.

There is a University policy on web accessibility, which requires all existing official sites to comply with the Priority 1 Recommendations, and all new official sites to comply with the Priority 2 Recommendations.
