What is Accessibility?

“Accessible means that individuals with disabilities are able to independently acquire the same information, engage in the same interactions, and enjoy the same services within the same timeframe as individuals without disabilities, with substantially equivalent ease of use.” -University of Montana Office of Civil Rights settlement agreement, 2012

U.S. Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights. (2013). Resolution Agreement between University of Montana and the U.S. Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights. Retrieved October 31, 2016 from http://www.umt.edu/accessibility/docs/FinalResolutionAgreement.pdf.
