Departments and programs purchasing web-based, student-facing software are responsible for ensuring the accessibility of the products before purchasing or licensing. If your department procures a product with known accessibility limitations, steps should be taken to provide equally effective alternatives for users affected by those accessibility limitations. In this way, we ensure that everyone can benefit from our technology tools.
OIT staff have developed a procedure and related documentation to support your efforts to evaluate technology tools (software and hardware) for accessibility and guide planning for users for whom products may not be accessible.
