Web Accessibility

Binghamton’s commitment to website accessibility

WCAG 2.0 standards guide Binghamton University's commitment to the ideal of universal web accessibility. The University strives to provide an accessible website experience with full access to its content for all University constituents and visitors. Every effort has been made to make these pages as accessible as possible in accordance with applicable state and federal guidelines (see NYS-P08-005).

Web content accessibility standards

To make it easier for Binghamton site editors to create accessible websites, the University provides web templates that meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Conformance Level AA guidelines.. Site editors need to do their part by making sure the content they add to those page templates also conforms to accessibility guidelines. Accessibility training is provided as part of our regular users group and is mandatory for all editors to maintain their access to the website editing software.

Maintaining website accessibility involves you!

Maintaining WCAG 2.0 accessibility standards over time depends upon you, the web editor. The University's website is comprised of thousands of sub-sites that are managed and maintained by individual departments or sponsoring organizations. The best way to address web accessibility issues is to contact the owner of the website directly. You can also use our online form to report any concerns and we will follow up with you.
