Designing Accessible Websites

Accessible Email

All email sent from a University account must be accessible. 

  1. Use accessible language. Put things as simple as possible, using bulletpoints when possible.
  2. Use descriptive "alt" tags for all images.
  3. Avoid relying on images to convey communication. If images are necessary, include include a text link back to an alternate, accessible version of the email.
  4. Provide sufficient color contrast.
  5. Any documents (PDF, Word, etc.) attached to email should also be accessible.
  6. Font size should be 12 point or larger.
  7. Use descriptive links (avoid 'click here').
