In an effort to ensure access to Web-based and other electronic resources and services, the Federal and State of Minnesota governments have enacted an assortment of laws that require government Web sites to be accessible to persons with disabilities.
Accessible web pages are constructed to be usable by anyone, even if they are using assistive technology to access the web page. Examples of assistive technology are screen readers, screen magnifiers, voice recognition software, alternative keyboards, and braille displays.
Accessibility Case Study Findings
The redesigned website provides a content-rich experience for current and prospective students, of all abilities, through improved ease of use, a better mobile experience and a more visually appealing site. The redesign also provides improved wayfinding via clear, consistent and universally accessible navigation. Overall, we completed over 2,800 accessibility tests on the ARCC site. That's over 140 tests per page! To this day, we have not encountered a feature on the ARCC website that we can't make accessible.
