DECS Statement on Web Accessibility
Web accessibility is the inclusive practice of removing barriers which prevent access to information and functionalities on websites. An online document or tool is accessible when it can be easily understood and used by everyone, regardless of the browser or adaptive equipment he or she is using.
The Division of Engineering Computing Services (DECS) has made an effort to make this website, as well as all those we develop, accessible to a broad range of users by updating its web accessibility Technical Guidelines to WCAG 2.0 AA (associated with the MSU Web Accessibility Policy and MSU's Accessibility guidelines) and making them compatible with screen readers and other assistive technologies.
