Accessible Technology

South Puget Sound Community College values diverse experiences and perspectives and strives to fully include everyone who engages with the College. Inaccessible information technology (IT) negatively impacts people with a variety of disabilities, including mobility/orthopedic impairments, sensory impairments, specific learning disabilities, attention deficits, autism spectrum disorders, speech impairments, health impairments, and psychiatric conditions.

To address these issues, SPSCC has developed a set of guidelines and an IT Accessibility checklist, which provides specific techniques and testing methods to assist the College community in meeting the Guidelines when creating and procuring IT.
