The University of Oklahoma Digital Accessibility Standards and Checkpoints

Introduction

The University of Oklahoma is committed to ensuring that web sites and web-based software are accessible to as broad of an audience as possible.  This commitment is reflected in The University of Oklahoma's Digital Accessibility Policy.

 

The University abides by the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, level AA and The State of Oklahoma's Electronic and Information Technology Accessibility (EITA) Standards.

 

Since there is overlap between these two sets of standards, The University has compiled a set of standards that will help web site designers, content managers, content owners and application developers to more efficiently navigate the standard sets.  The combined set of standards is introduced in the following pages.  It is important to note that this set of standards should be a starting point and that the full WCAG 2.0, AA is covered in detail in the link above.

 

Additional resources to help test for adherence to the standards can be found here.  https://cdac.outreach.ou.edu/tools-and-resources/
