Web Accessibility

Universal Access Is Our Goal

The University of Nevada, Las Vegas is committed to making its website accessible to the widest possible audience, including individuals with disabilities. We strive to meet or exceed the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0 A & AA) established by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and use the Accessible Rich Internet Applications (ARIA) specification. Our efforts are in alignment with NSHE’s Policy for Information and Communications Technology Accessibility.

UNLV's Information and Communication Technology Accessibility Policy  was passed by committee and signed by the Provost on Jan. 20, 2020

Spreadsheets, PowerPoints, Word Docs

All productivity software such as spreadsheets, powerpoints, and word documents must be exported for the web in an accessible PDF format. All PDFs should be checked via Adobe’s Accessibility tool to ensure it passes reading order, tagging, and proper accessibility compliance.

Some pages included in the UNLV website are archival in nature and may not be fully conformant to meet the WCAG guidelines due to the very limited use of these resources. Should you need access to the information within these archived pages, please contact UNLV Web & Digital Strategy and we will provide assistance or information in an alternate format.
