Digital Accessibility (D.A. Start)

Overview - Be a Digital Ally

Digital accessibility is the practice of creating equal access to digital content.  At UTMB we strive to continually improve our content availability for our patients, staff, students, and others that consume our content.

Each of us has a role in making content as accessible as possible. This site has been created as a training and reference site to educate the UTMB community about mandated accessibility requirements and the steps we can each take to best serve our various audiences.

Accessibility is a broad topic. Our approach focuses initially on sharing best practices for the most commonly used applications -- Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Word -- and will extend to other applications and needs over time. "Playbooks" for roles and applications provide tailored instructions. The good news is that as you become familiar with digital accessibility requirements and solutions, you'll find they often apply across applications.
