3.4 Accessibility

It is critical to create accessible content in order to engage all of your learners. There are several accessibility features embedded in websites and digital media content that require the attention of the creator. In general, the core principles of creating accessible digital content as outline by Utah State University’s Center for Persons with Disabilities require content to be:

  • Perceivable – Available universally through sight, hearing, or touch.
  • Operable – Compatible with keyboard or mouse.
  • Understandable – User-friendly, easy to comprehend.
  • Robust – Works across browsers, assistive technologies, mobile devices, old devices/browsers, etc. Follows standards.
