Accessibility allows people with disabilities to interact with the same technologies as non-disabled people.
Our Accessibility consultants research and evaluate accessible means to represent information to users on websites, applications, and as content.
Primary goals include:
- Building awareness and an understanding of accessibility and its core principles across the institute
- Educating developers and stakeholders on laws related to accessibility and MIT's legal obligations
- Assisting product development groups in applying accessibility principles to their work
- Providing accessibility consulting services to clients across the institute and within IS&T
