Web Accessibility

Accessible Web design provides better usability and benefits everyone, including persons with disabilities. It provides benefit to users with text-based browsers, low-end processors, slow modem connections, or users who do not have state-of-the-art computer equipment. It also allows for easier access to the Internet via technologies such as internet-enabled phones or personal digital assistants.

The Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) has adopted the Worldwide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.0, Level A & AA and Section 508 standards for federal electronic and information technology issued by the U.S. Access Board. TBR strives to follow WCAG Level A & AA and Section 508 standards for an accessible and usable Web environment.
