Usability & Web Accessibility – Using University Supported Platforms

Posted by Yale University | Date Accessed: August 17, 2022

Site owners should consider using university-supported platforms for their sites. University-supported platforms include YaleSites and Tridion. Yale staff regularly update these platforms for accessibility, security, and functionality. Hence, using these platforms may make compliance easier.

Using a university-supported platform does not guarantee site accessibility. Site owners are still responsible for all content added to the site. Site owners are also responsible for the accessibility of any site-specific customizations.

Platform owners should work to make sites built on their platform as accessible as possible by default. Platform owners should also support site owners in making accessible configurations. Platform owners should ensure that editors can add accessible content, and document how to do so.
