The old database will be available to the public until March 1, 2020, after which it will be replaced with a request wall. If someone requests a publication, the author will be notified. Authors will only need to remediate requested publications if the requester needs an ADA compliant version. Otherwise, authors may send the original document to the requester.
Some scholastic works have images embedded throughout the record. These images will be added into the Webpage Version box after the text has been copy-pasted and reformatted.
Because of the funding the University receives, we are bound by federal law on accessibility to make sure everyone is able to experience the content on our site. A recent legal agreement between the University and the Office of Civil Rights in Washington, D.C. also obligates us to make our site content accessible. Plus, Extension’s purpose is to help people, including people who have an ability difference.
Alternate text, also known as alt text, helps people with visual impairments who use screen readers; however, not everyone with a visual impairment uses a screen reader. So, adding alt. text to an image with text on it will still leave some people with disabilities unable to experience the content on our site.
The accessibility checker that is used to monitor the University’s compliance with the legal agreement has a manual check in place that causes every single image to be examined for text. If an image without text cannot be found, the University’s placeholder image for missing visuals will automatically show up.
Images must be jpegs that are no wider or taller than 586px. They can be smaller.
Tip: Check out LinkedIn Learning for videos on how to prepare images for the web.
There are three preset image types for a scholastic work: content blocks, banners and thumbnails. These image types show up with scholastic works titles and descriptions throughout the website. Preset images are added separately and are not part of the process of adding a record to the database. For more information on preset images, see How to add images to a scholastic work.
