Web Accessibility Policy

Texas A&M University-Texarkana is committed to making its Web sites accessible to all users and we have included several features designed to improve accessibility for users with disabilities. Some of these features are described below.

Images on the site contain 'alt tags' with descriptions of the image, which aid users who listen to the content of the site by using a screen reader, rather than reading the site. Text transcripts accompany audio clips of speeches and remarks.

A 'skip to' link provides users with a method for bypassing the header and going directly to the main content each time a page is accessed.

Major reports and other special publications that are made available on the agency's Web site are generally available in html. In some cases we may publish a document using Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). When posting PDF files, we follow the "How to Create Accessible Adobe PDF Files" and may post the document with two links. The first link is to the PDF file and the second is to a copy of the PDF document by simple conversion to html.

To improve the accessibility of our Web site we test any major redesign with several screen readers and other Web tools. The results of these reviews have been incorporated into the Website. The Texas A&M University-Texarkana welcomes comments on how to improve the site's accessibility for users with disabilities.
