Accessibility Policy

TAMIU is committed to making the University's Web sites accessible to all users. We create our sites and pages using dedicated principles of accessibility and usability design. We welcome ideas and comments focused on improving our pages for users with disabilities. If you use assistive technology and the format of any material on our Web sites interferes with your ability to access the information, please alert us at webmaster@tamiu.edu. Please indicate the nature of your accessibility problem, the format in which you would like to receive the material, the Web address of the requested material, and your contact information. TAMIU has adopted the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) as its primary guideline to meet the objectives of the Universal Accessibility for Web Sites policy and the Texas Administrative Code, Title 1, Part 10, Chapter 206 and University Standard Administrative Policy (SAP) 29.01.99.L1.28 Web Accessibility and Usability Procedures.

These guidelines provide clear directions to help make Web content accessible to people with disabilities. They are intended for all Web content developers (page authors and site designers) and for developers of authoring tools. While the primary goal of these guidelines is to promote accessibility, following them helps make Web content more available to all users, whatever user agent employed (e.g., desktop browser, voice browser, mobile phone, automobile-based personal computer, etc.) or constraints they may be operating under (e.g., noisy surroundings, under- or over-illuminated rooms, a hands-free environment, etc.). Following these guidelines will also help people find information on the Web more quickly. These guidelines do not discourage content developers from using images, video, etc., but rather explain how to make multimedia content more accessible to a wider audience.
