A Message to Campus Web Developers: UTMB Health and Web Accessibility
As a place of healing, health education and scientific discovery, UTMB Health has a responsibility to ensure that all users can access the content it offers online.
If you are involved in web development, or manage or contribute content that goes online — including videos, forms, PDFs, presentations, images and other documents — this message is relevant to you.
We invite you to complete a quick 5-question survey about web accessibility: https://utmb.us/25u
A task force has been working for several months assessing our online presence, assembling resources and tools, and developing a communication plan. The group has outlined a strategy to enhance the accessibility of all types of content available via the university’s web sites.
In the next few weeks, we will:
- Present our survey findings in a follow-up email
- Schedule web accessibility training dates
- Provide a “risk assessment” form to help you analyze your websites
