Guide to Accessible Web Services

Guide to Accessible Web Services


Accessibility is a commitment to providing equitable access to your services; not an item on a project checklist. It is the responsibility of each state employee and not a single person, team, or agency. 

Designing, developing and maintaining accessible technology starts by understanding your role and responsibilities.

What We’re Doing to Improve Accessibility

The guides on this website are just part of a meaningful change in making state services inclusive and accessible. OIT is also committed to:

  • Designing accessibility policies, guidelines and strategies alongside partners with a diverse range of abilities and perspectives.
  • Aligning with executive branch agencies to provide training, support and resources for accessibility.
  • User-friendly, accessible guidelines to help state employees make web content accessible to users with sensory, cognitive and mobility disabilities and ultimately to all users, regardless of ability.
  • Improving procurement processes and supporting state employees with procurement guidelines, training and support.
  • Following WCAG 2.1 AA as our minimum standard of accessibility. WCAG 2.1 AA Guidelines, W3C
