Accessibility at FIT

Electronic information technology (EIT) accessibility removes barriers to content delivered digitally—on websites, in apps, in emails, etc.

Accessibility focuses on all users, including those who use assistive technology, such as screen readers.  It extends to users who have hearing impairment, cognitive impairment, motor impairment, and other kinds of disabilities.

Accessibility Facts

Defining "Disability"

"Disability" is broadly defined as an impairment that may be physical, cognitive, mental, sensory, emotional, developmental, or some combination of these. A disability may be present from birth, or occur during a person's lifetime.

Disabilities Are Common

One in 4 U.S. adults – 61 million Americans – have a disability that impacts major life activities, according to a report in CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

Universal Design Benefits Everyone

Prioritizing accessibility usually improves usability for all, with or without a disability.

Guidelines, Laws, and Policies

Schools that receive public funding are subject to guidelines determined by their respective state legislatures and the federal government. Schools that are part of larger systems may also be subject to additional guidelines.
