Can you imagine a website that not all your visitors can experience? That’s part of the reason for the redesign of semo.edu. Modern websites need to be accessible for users who experience the site with screen readers and other tools to make it accessible. The challenge is that sometimes the way a page is set up means a screen reader may not be able to read the page.
The redesign of semo.edu has been undertaken with a goal of making the site accessible for all our current and future Redhawks. This has sometimes guided the design and development decisions. Examples would be perhaps a table isn’t the best way to display the information or particular colors are used for greater accessibility, and one of the biggest for a University — PDFs must be built to be accessible and readable for screen readers.
