ICT accessibility in the UPC.

Three keys with letters W3C.

On 11th of November 2008, UPC signed an agreement among IMSERSO (Socials Affairs of the Spanish Government) and Fundación ONCE (disability organization) to improve ICT accessibility of the UPC. The Accessibility Chair coordinated the project and there were 7 different units involved, as well as, Technosite Company. The accessibility was audited in the e-learning platform, student’s intranet of Computing Faculty, Genweb, and others websites. But the most important improvement was the audit and certification of the homepage (www.upc.edu) achieving level Double-A Technosite + Euracert, conformance to W3C-WAI Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0. ICT staff has been trained in accessibility and the Library Service has adjusted two workstations for students with disability.

Participants:UPC, UPCNet, Technosite.
Duration: 2008-2010.
