What is Web Accessibility?

Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can read, navigate, and contribute on the Web.

Texas A&M University implemented a Web Accessibility Policy for all University Web pages used to conduct core University business or academic activities.

This website, was also created to provide a central place for Web accessibility guidelines, tutorials, forms, and services available to the TAMUG community.
