KU is required under federal and state laws to make its digital content accessible to individuals with disabilities. Accessible digital content means that all new technology systems, services, or applications either procured or developed have been designed, developed, or procured to be usable by, and therefore accessible to people with disabilities, including those who use assistive technologies.
