As our daily lives become digital, it’s more important than ever to ensure that information is accessible to everyone.
In your role as an instructor, design your digital products (e.g., electronic documents, websites, mobile apps, email or videos) so they are usable by all — through color scheme choice, transcripts and/or captions, adding alternative text, and more.
