The South Texas College community strives to make information and communication technologies accessible to and usable for all. Individuals with a disability are quite often denied access to content brought on by unintended barriers.

What is Accessible Technology

Accessible technology has been designed in a way that can be accessed by all users. We must not assume that everyone is using a traditional monitor, browser, and keyboard. Accessible technology is created with accessibility being the main priority. Accessible technology includes electronic documents, websites, software, hardware, video, audio, and much more.

Laws Regarding Accessibility

Sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) are the key laws regarding accessibility that STC must follow and ensure compliance with. Section 504 prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in all programs or activities that receive federal financial assistance. Section 508 sets requirements for accessible technology. Title II of the ADA prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability by public entities, including state colleges and universities regardless of whether they receive federal financial assistance.
