TTU is also committed to making its web sites accessible to all users and we have included several features designed to improve accessibility for users with disabilities. Some of these features are described below.

Images on the site contain 'alt tags' with descriptions of the image, which aid users who listen to the content of the site by using a screen reader, rather than reading the site.

Major reports and other special publications that are made available on the TTU web site are generally available in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). Many reports are also available in HTML.

TTU endorses the guidelines of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) as the standard for World Wide Web accessibility.

To improve the accessibility of the TTU web site we currently use various tools for site validation and tools available through the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

TTU welcomes comments on how to improve the site's accessibility for users with disabilities.

If you use assistive technology and the format of any material on our web site interferes with your ability to access the information, please contact us at webmaster@ttu.edu or use the points of contact listed above for assistance. To enable us to respond in a manner most helpful to you, please indicate the nature of your accessibility problem, the preferred format in which to receive the material, the web address of the requested material, and your contact information.

Additional information about accessibility programs in Texas is available from the Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities.
