Accessibility

ECDS is committed to continuously improving the accessibility of its space and its projects.

If you have difficulty accessing our digital projects, website, or physical space in the 303 suite in the Woodruff Library, or have ideas for improving them, please email us at ecds@emory.edu or visit us on the 3rd Floor.

ECDS includes computer work stations, a recording studio, video conference room, and meeting space, all which are ADA compliant. Designated work stations are available for use whenever the center is open, and the other spaces can be reserved by sending an email to ecds@emory.edu.

The ECDS website follows Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 and encourages projects originating from or involved with the Center to similarly adopt accessibility guidelines including:

  • Using headings in the correct order to facilitate navigation, particularly with screen readers
  • Providing alternative text for images, visualizations, video, and audio media
  • Skipping navigation links at the top of the page
  • Using high contrast colors

We recommend addressing accessibility considerations from the beginning of project planning and within organizational workflows. Resources on WebAIM, including the web accessibility evaluation tool, provide a starting point for taking accessibility into consideration.

Please contact us with any suggestions, concerns, comments, or questions, or to simply chat.
