Electronic and information technology (EIT) accessibility is about providing equal access to information for everyone.

At Georgetown, we strive to be women and men for others. By ensuring that our technology is accessible to everyone, we build an inclusive experience that is mindful of individuals’ differing needs and ways of interacting with our systems, websites, content, and courses.

What is EIT accessibility?

EIT accessibility means that all content, systems, and websites should be consumable by every visitor, regardless of ability. Many people with disabilities use assistive technologies like screenreaders, magnifiers, and Braille terminals to use computers.

How can I ensure the EIT I manage is accessible?

  1. Review the EIT policy
  2. Read the EIT procedures and guidelines
  3. Try out the website testing tools
  4. Read resources and documentation
