Digital accessibility

By Robert Drinkall, on 11 July 2019

As you may already be aware, new legislation applying to the accessibility of websites and mobile applications was introduced in 2018.

A UCL Digital Accessibility Task and Finish Group has been established to co-ordinate the implementation of this legislation across UCL, and within Library Services a working group has been set up to develop a working plan for Library compliance.

More from the group will follow, but in the meantime, if you’d like to read up about what’s involved, please see ISD’s Creating accessible content web pages, which also outline face-to-face sessions you can attend.

For web authors who edit content for the public library website, please note that the Web Team is already checking for any accessibility issues as part of the web page approval process.
