Web Accessibility Standards

SF State has adopted the CSU ATI Accessibility requirements which incorporate both Section 508 and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.

Section 508

Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act was enacted in 1998 and required of the federal government to make all electronic and information technology accessible to people with disabilities. In January 2017, the U.S. Access Board published a final rule revising the accessibility requirements for information and communication technology (ICT). These standards are based on the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. Review the WCAG 2.0 Standards 

SF State Template

We recommend using the SF State Web Template for your website. The SF State Web Template has been developed with accessibility in mind. It guarantees, if used correctly, that the basic features of a website such as navigation, search functions and layout structure are accessible to people with disabilities. More information about the SF State Web Template.

Drupal @ SF State

Drupal is a content management system that helps you to edit and manage your website in an easy way. Non-technical users can update the content.  Once setup, Drupal requires no advanced technical skills. It saves your department money and time. Drupal at SF State is using the SF State template, which mostly ensures accessibility. The Drupal team and the ATI team work closely together to make sure that all modules and features that are used by the SF State Drupal instance are accessible. For more information on Drupal and how you can request an account, please visit the SF State Drupal website.
