Higher Ed Ally is what a collection of the resources I would have wanted when our Institution of Higher Education realized our website was not accessible for people with disabilities, two years ago.

Throughout this site won’t just be an explanation of what web accessibility is, nor will it be a reiteration of WCAG standards; those can be found via other great web accessibility sites.

Instead, here you’ll find a detailed explanation of what the OCR will expect from your university when a complaint is filed, the steps you’ll want to take to begin making your website more accessible, and a collection of other resources that are meant to provide a more effective way to web accessibility.

If you have questions that aren’t answered or topics not addressed in these blog posts, please let us know, and we’ll get back to you with some answers.
