Web Accessibility

Accessibility Accountability

Approved by the University Technology Committee -- November 9, 2000

The university's World Wide Web Policy, Wright Way #2001, states that "Web page owners and publishers must adhere to the Accessibility Guidelines linked from the university's Web Accessibility Information Web site located at http://www.wright.edu/web/access/

Process as of Spring Quarter 2000-2001

  1. To have access to a university Web server, you must check the appropriate box on the Web Access Request, which indicates you have read and understand the university Web Accessibility Guidelines and that you agree to incorporate the guidelines into any university Web sites, which you create and/or maintain.
  2. If you are requesting access to a server other than the university's main Web server, you will be asked to respond to a similar question to gain access to the Web server.

  3. If you already have access to a university Web server, you should already have become familiar with the Accessibility Guidelines and have incorporated accessibility into your existing site. Failure to do so will result in execution of the compliance measures outlined below. 
  4. If you are having difficulty understanding and/or implementing the guidelines, faculty may enroll in a Web class offered by the Center for Teaching and Learning. Staff and students who maintain university Web sites may enroll in a Web class offered by  CaTS/Library. Classes will highlight accessibility issues and guidelines.

Compliance

As of July 1, 2001, the following steps will be taken when Web pages are found to be noncompliant with the Web Accessibility Guidelines:

  1. Web page owner and publisher will be notified and given two weeks to correct the problems.
  2. If problems aren't corrected, Web page owner and publisher will be notified that access to the Web pages will be blocked within the next five days, and their access to the Web server denied. 
  3. To regain access to the Web server, Web page owner and/or publisher must provide proof that they have read and understand the Web Accessibility Guidelines and that the proposed new pages for their Web site adhere to the guidelines.
