Accessibility and the MI Spartan Impact website

The msutoday.msu.edu website launched in November, 2012, meets the requirements set forth in “Section I. Required Checkpoints” of the MSU Web Accessibility Guidelines.

There are portions of the design that do not meet the “Section II. Recommended Checkpoints” of the MSU Web Accessibility Guidelines. Specifically, a site map is not included, visited links are not differentiated from non-visited links, relative units were not used for sizing and positioning website content, abbr and acronym elements are not used, and rich media elements are embedded using YouTube video players and the Adobe Flash plug-in.

The team who developed this website will continue to integrate new web accessibility standards as they become available.

General Information

In the development of the MSUToday Web Site, we have worked towards adding a significant number of accessibility features. These features complement the use of assistive technologies and to help make the site usable to the broadest possible audience, everyone from those who use assistive technologies to those with a low end browser or computer.

For assistance with the content and function of this site, please use 'Contact Us' link at the very bottom of every page. We also provide a link back to this Accessibility page at the bottom of each page. Persons using assistive devices should contact the Resource Center for Persons with Disabilities for assistive technology assistance.

Users of the JAWS screen reader: Please be aware that JAWS is designed to work best with Internet Explorer. If you are using JAWS but have selected to use another browser, JAWS may not be able to take advantage of the accessibility features provided within this application.

Note: Once you navigate outside of this site these accessibility features might not necessarily be implemented.
