The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston strives to
provide web-based information and services that are accessible to all
users. UTMB is committed to provide public web information in a fashion
that meets the needs of interested individuals without regard to
physical or technical limitations.
General accessibility standards for UTMB web pages are defined by the
World Wide Web Consortium's
Web Accessibility Initiative
and guided by
applicable state laws
The institution defines "web accessibility" as the ability of users
to get information whether they use:
- Text-based web browsers
- Screen readers or text-to-speech converters
- Various hardware and software platforms
- Browsers that omit images
UTMB's web site is decentralized, and originates from separate
entities within the institution. Regardless of origin, every page
containing official university content is charged with complying with
state and university rules regarding accessibility. UTMB promotes
understanding of issues central to accessibility among its community of
web developers, and pledges to work to quickly address any accessibility
issues that are brought to the institutions attention.
