What is Digital Accessibility?

Digital Accessibility is the process of making digital products, such as websites, apps, online learning content, and any other online tools, accessible to all people regardless of ability or disability. 

Why is Digital Accessibility Important? 

Digital Accessibility is not just legal, and University, policy, it is a best practice and "the right thing to do." 

What is The Ohio State University's policy for Digital Accessibility?
