Website Accessibility

The information found on this page and in our digital media accessibility help site will help you understand the need for accessibility as it relates to different program areas.

Web accessibility not only provides for visually impaired persons to have complete access to our web site, but provides equal opportunity to any persons with any type of disability to have full and complete access to the information our Extension professionals provide to citizens. Call us with questions!

 Intermediate OU training on accessibility and H tags

Proper Use of H tags 

 How you structure the content on your page is key not only for readability but also to indicate to screen readers (and search engines) what is the most important (and second most important, etc.) part of your web page.
