The mission of UCLA’s Disabilities and Computing Program at the Office of Advanced Research Computing is two-fold. The first goal is to facilitate the integration of adaptive computing technology into the areas of instruction, study, research, and employment at UCLA. The second goal is to make information – including electronic text and multimedia – accessible to all students, faculty and staff.
Have you ever wondered how to launch a website with accessibility in mind or needed to vet a vendor for accessibility? The DCP offers accessible web, accessible documents and accessible purchasing consultations free of charge. If you are launching a new or highly revised site please reach out to the DCP.
The DCP manages the Siteimprove tool for scanning a website for accessibility. If you are interested in learning more about the free tools for automated testing please reach out an we will grant full access and training to Siteimprove.
The best way to test a website, document or new technology for accessibility is to have real people with disabilities use it. The DCP offers a full accessibility review with live testers who are native assistive technology users. We help you determine the accessibility of your site, document or learning module.
The most important aspect of accessibility is spreading the message of inclusive design. UCLA is committed to equity and inclusion for the students, staff and faculty with disabilities. The DCP offers ongoing training throughout the year on many different topics related to accessibility.
