Webpage Accessibility Evaluations:

All campus web pages must be created with accessible materials in accordance with federal and state laws, along with the CSU Chancellor's Office Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) rulings. All content owners are required to be familiar with web accessibility practices and create content that meets campus guidelines.

Web evaluations are conducted to report problems regarding the accessibility and usability of web applications within the CSUSM web environment. Page content testing happens on a monthly basis and testing is done on individual department web sites; if issues are identified, page edits may be made for you or an email may be sent out notifying of the issues by the Web Accessibility Specialist. 

Key accessibility features include:

  • Descriptive link text (should be able to read a link and know where it is going to without reading the rest of the sentence).
  • Alternative text descriptions on all images. These must be meaningful. Please do not put "image".
  • Structural markup to identify headings and lists.
  • Association of all data cells in a data table with column and row headers.
  • Sites that working with or without Style Sheets used to enhance the appearance of sites.

If assistance is needed on creating an accessible website, please email webaccessibility@csusm.edu and someone from the accessibility team will assist. Learn more about CSUSM's Accessibility requirements.
