NC State University is committed to providing a barrier-free IT environment to all people. The university has a technology-rich teaching environment where applications, tools, and other educational resources are deployed in conventional and virtual computing labs, Web-based environments, and online learning management systems. The IT Accessibility Office:
- Promotes the integration of universal usability in the procurement, development and deployment of campus-wide IT resources.
- Provides assistance in creating universally usable IT resources, including:
- Accessibilty Reviews
- Online Tutorials
- Collaborates with university IT service providers to find innovative solutions to accessibility challenges for the emerging technologies being used or considered for instructional and content delivery.
Policies and Procedures
- NC State has an ICT Accessibility Regulation (go.ncsu.edu/ict-accessiblity-reg) that outlines the responsibilities of faculty and staff in regards to accessibility.
- A set of FAQs about the regulation provide more detail about how the regulation applies to a variety of processes at the university.
- It is the responsibility of the content creator to design accessible content.
- Plan for accessibility from the beginning because the process of creating accessible content is an order of magnitude easier, both in time and money, than fixing accessibility issues after the fact.
- All content should be made accessible when delivered to a group where the functional limitations are not known, including, but not limited to, the public display of content on websites, or someone in the group needs an accessible version.
