NC State Website Accessibility Challenge begins now

NC State University Office of IT Accessibility is sponsoring a Website Accessibility Challenge as part of World Usability Day, which is Thursday, Nov. 14. World Usability Day brings people together “to ensure that the services and products important to life are easier to access and simpler to use.”

NC State’s Website Accessibility Challenge begins now, and campus website owners will have until 11:59 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 13 to:

  • address general usability by correcting the most website accessibility errors.
  • add a “skip to main content” link on at least 80 percent of their Web pages. This accessibility feature allows visitors who cannot use a mouse to skip to the main content of a page using only their keyboard.
