Rutgers is dedicated to making its web-based resources accessible to everyone. Below are some of the international standards and tools available to web developers to help achieve more universal web accessibility.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) are specific guidelines for web accessibility recommended by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). It is our mission to adhere to these guidelines in providing web-based services to Rutgers University.
Accessible Rich Internet Applications (ARIA) has been developed by W3C’s Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) to make web content and applications more accessible to users with disabilities. The WAI-ARIA Suite includes technical specifications for web developers, a User Agent Implementation Guide, Authoring Practices, a Primer, and a Roadmap.
WCAG2ICT describes how WCAG 2.0 can be applied to non-web information and communications technologies. It supports harmonized accessibility solutions across a range of technologies.
