Web Accessibility


Electronic and Information Resources Accessibility Policy

Sam Houston State University is committed to making all official, academic and business, University sponsored pages accessible to all users. A descriptive text equivalent is provided for images aiding users who listen to the content of the site by using a screen reader, rather than reading the site. Major reports and other publications that are on the Web site are generally available in HTML or Adobe Portable Document Format.

SHSU is committed to making its Web site accessible according to the standards set forth by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). To improve the accessibility of our Web site, we test any major redesign with screen readers and other tools. The results of these reviews are incorporated into the Web site. We currently use various tools for site validation, and it is our goal to achieve the highest level of accessibility attainable. Yearly audits are conducted to ensure compliance with the criteria established by the state (TAC 206 & TAC 213 ).

SHSU welcomes comments on how to improve the site's accessibility for users with disabilities. If you use assistive technology and the format of any material on our Web site interferes with your ability to access the information, please contact SHSU at servicedesk@shsu.edu or telephone our Service desk at 936.294.1950. To enable us to respond in a manner most helpful to you, please indicate the nature of your accessibility problem, the preferred format in which to receive the material, the Web address of the requested material, and your contact information.

Additional information about accessibility programs in Texas is available from the Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities website.
