Digital Accessibility

What is Digital Accessibility?

It is important to understand that we all access information in different ways. This could be via a laptop, a phone, or a tablet. Equally, it could be with the support of a piece of assistive technology, for instance a screen-reader or read-aloud software. Some of us may rely on visual means to take in information, whereas others require audio. Digital accessibility ensures that we can all access the same content in a clear and consistent format that best suits our individual needs.

In this section you will find support for teaching staff on how to produce accessible teaching materials, including Ally for Brightspace, and tools for students to engage with learning materials in an accessible way.

UCD is a University for All, and strives for inclusion in all areas of University life. For more information on our institutional commitment to digital accessibility, please visit our accessibility statement.
