Dynamic Duo drives accessibility at WKU - I Break Websites LLC. Laura DeLancey, Electronic Resources Librarian at Western Kentucky University (WKU) and Shaden Melky, Library Technology Consultant (Accessibility Specialist) work well together.
Their teamwork, along with a University-wide accessibility initiative, produces better and richer inclusion for students with disabilities on campus and in their distance learning programs. Laura, who received her library degree from Indiana University, and then moved to WKU several years ago, says that what draws librarians into the field is that “people are passionate about providing quality information resources to everyone, from whatever economic background. Public libraries are free. This (working on accessibility) is a logical extension of that.” “There is a whole population born with disabilities and then there are the many who are aging and their eyes aren’t working as well. Shaden was practically raised into her current position. Laura chimes in, “It’s almost like ‘why shouldn’t we work on this?’
Summary. Donoughe Design - San Mateo, Ca : Work : University of Arkansas Extension. The entire project took over a year to complete.

It included a microsite for the Division of Agriculture and a unique look and feel for the 4-H area. UAEX has over 9 different audience groups that we surveyed. UAEX had a wealth of interesting content that we collected and grouped together so that users could quickly access libraries.
These "large content areas" includes plant image library, tree identification, farm plans, horticulture glossary, extension policies and more.

EJ1040525. F73: Failure of Success Criterion 1.4.1 due to creating links that are not visually evident without color vision. The objective of this failure is to avoid situations in which people who cannot perceive color differences cannot identify links (when people with color vision can identify links).
Link underlines or some other non-color visual distinction are required (when the links are discernible to those with color vision). While some links may be visually evident from page design and context, such as navigational links, links within text are often visually understood only from their own display attributes. Removing the underline and leaving only the color difference for such links would be a failure because there would be no other visual indication (besides color) that it is a link. Note 1: Red and Pink are the same color (hue) but they have different lightness (which is not color ). WCAG Is Not Scary Anymore - A Progressive Approach to Website Accessibility – Wuhcag.

NCDAE is proud to lead a grant effort sponsored by the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE).
The project, Gaining Online Accessible Learning through Self-Study (GOALS) will capitalize on the products of an existing GOALS project and focus on motivations of top administrators to choose to engage in self-study and continuous improvement on web accessibility. This information will then help the GOALS partners to create blueprints that will help promote adoption of institutional web accessibility in higher education. Learn More about GOALS Participate.

Introduction Providing equal access—for all—to university resources is a national trend. The Commission on Access, Diversity, and Excellence, a standing commission of the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities (APLU), has a goal of promoting access, not as an option for public land-grant universities, but as a requirement for all member institutions to broaden the path of access and opportunity (APLU, n.d.). Oregon State University (OSU), a member of APLU, highly values the priorities set forth by this commission (Oregon State University, 2012). In 2011, OSU's president asked each college and unit to reevaluate how university resources are provided to students and the public, including Extension clients. Because land-grant universities across the country have been called on to improve access for all, it is important to understand how Extension attempts to meet this goal.
Strategies for Accommodating Extension Clients Who Face Language, Vision, or Hearing Challenges. Background Language, vision, or hearing (LVH) challenges can impede learning in certain situations or environments. A disability is a physical or mental impairment that limits one or more things a person can do, making it difficult for that individual to learn, see, or hear ("Americans with Disabilities Act," 2009). An accommodation is a different way to do a task (Brady & McKee, 2005). It uses a learner's strengths to work around the learner's areas of need (National Institute for Literacy, 1999). An accommodation should not create a hardship but rather should help the learner meet his or her need. Serving Clientele with Disabilities: An Assessment of Texas FCS Agents' Needs for Implementing Inclusive Programs.

Serving Clientele with Disabilities: An Assessment of Texas FCS Agents' Needs for Implementing Inclusive Programs. Improving Disability Awareness Among Extension Agents. Introduction The prevalence of rates of disabilities nationally and in Texas is steadily increasing. Further, community educators such as Extension agents must be cognizant of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) that was passed in 1990. ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination solely on the basis of disability access to employment, public services, and accommodations. What Cooperative Extension Should Know About the Americans with Disabilities Act. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which became law in January 1992, has been described by the media and politicians as the most sweeping social legislation since the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Its provisions are so broad as to be practically elusive.
