Digital Accessibility Guide

W3C standards

The Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) maintains standards for verifying elements called the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, or WCAG 2.1 (updated June 2018).

Accessibility for teams

Accessibility is a team effort. Everyone has a role to play. This Google guide describes a few key items that each team member can use to quickly ramp up on the subject and improve the overall experience of their site or app.

UNC branding and visual identity

UNC updated its guidelines in 2017 for web applications to include accessible colors and recommendations for logos.

Keyboard accessibility

Keyboard accessibility is sometimes overlooked since it is not something that automated checkers can catch. Learn about ways to improve the keyboard accessibility of your website.

Captions and transcripts

If your website includes embedded video, always include a transcript on the page so that the content is easily accessible to screen readers. All videos require captions with spoken dialogue as well as audio descriptions.
