Digital Accessibility Resources Available to Support NDEAM
October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM), which recognizes the contributions of workers with disabilities and highlights inclusive employment policies and practices that benefit employers and employees. This month, let’s reaffirm our commitment to accessibility in digital spaces.
Maintaining an accessible digital footprint makes it possible for everyone to engage with your content. Thankfully, the Stanford Office of Digital Accessibility has many resources to help you ensure your web content is accessible for all.
Where to start
Visit the Office of Digital Accessibility website and explore solutions that can help you build a strong foundation for your accessibility efforts, including:
- Digital content guides: Have a presentation planned? Creating modules in Canvas? Follow step-by-step guides for common software applications to improve the accessibility of your digital content and engage with diverse audiences.
- Concepts breakdowns: Unsure how to write effective alternative text? Need help captioning video content? Get well-versed in accessibility best practices to improve content clarity and accessibility.
- Office hours: Have questions? Need your website content evaluated for accessibility? Sign up for accessibility office hours to answer questions, conduct evaluations, and more.
