About Accessibility for All
"Accessibility for All" supports Montana State University instructors and other academic employees making educational content accessible for students with disabilities. The program offers free online tutorials to help instructors make materials that meet WCAG 2.0 AA, the standard for accessibility at MSU.
MSU is committed to accessibility for all students, including those with visual, auditory, motor, cognitive, and other kinds of disabilities. (According to the CDC, approximately one in four people in the United States has a disability.) MSU signed an agreement with the United States Office for Civil Rights on May 2, 2018 to bring its web content up to current web accessibility standards. Yet the university aspires to do more: it plans to make all electronic educational content accessible, including password-protected content, such as that found in Brightspace or Panopto.
"Accessibility for All" provides instructors and academic employees with practical tools and efficient workflows for meeting this goal and making educational content accessible to every student.
