Web Accessibility Guidelines
The following guidelines have been developed to assist university personnel in developing Web documents that comply with the minimally accepted standards that Texas State Web documents must meet. By using the following guidelines in the design and programming of Web documents, you ensure that all Internet users can use your Web site, regardless of their disability or the limitations of their equipment or software. While these guidelines present the minimally acceptable standards of accessibility, Web page developers are strongly encouraged to maximize the accessibility of their pages for universal access by referring to the complete text at the Web locations specified at the end of these guidelines.
