Start Small, Start Now

As you explore this site and learn more about digital accessibility, you may wonder what action you can take to create a more accessible UL. No matter your role at the University, we recommend starting small by learning one of the seven core skills. As you become more comfortable practicing one of the skills, start working on another and continue to grow your skillset. 

These core skills are not only a great place to start, but they will help cultivate a more inclusive, accessible, equitable world for members of the University community and beyond.

The core skills are:

  • Alternative text
  • Contrast
  • Documents
  • Writing accessible content
  • Headings
  • Links
  • Lists
  • Video and audio

If any of this information is completely new to you, that’s okay! You’re in the right place. You don't need to learn everything right away. The point of these skills is to give you somewhere to start. 

Whatever your role, start small, but start now!
