It is exciting when work gets noticed, and the work that we are all doing has received positive recognition as highlighted content in the EDUCAUSE Journal Online! Take a look at the EDUCAUSE article to read more about how some institutions in Oklahoma are working to make accessibility part of their campus!
Twenty-six Oklahoma institutions of higher education working toward the same goal of making Oklahoma higher education more accessible to everyone. The Project runs from Fall, 2012 through Fall, 2016. Over 150 individual project team members becoming accessibility aware and informed. An innovative effort that combines the resources and expertise of Oklahoma ABLE Tech, WebAIM, and the Southwest ADA Center at ILRU. The goal: to help institutions of higher education throughout Oklahoma create more accessible digital campus environments.
Over the course of the project, teams will receive targeted training and technical assistance from Oklahoma ABLE Tech, nationally recognized accessibility experts and WebAIM. Teams will create a feasible plan and expertise to develop a system-wide commitment to accessibility and the technical development skills to create functionally and technically accessible digital environments.
We are seeing some great strides taken by institutions. And, we have begun to identify some challenges that institutions might face as they work toward building a successful web accessibility initiative.

There is a lot going on as we get into the last year of the Project! We're thrilled to welcome another institution to the Project and we're working to get them caught up with some of our premier institutions in the state. At the same time, we continue to work closely with a number of participating institutions to help with topics from document accessibility to multimedia captioning to institutional accessibility policy.
Please call or or email Oklahoma ABLE Tech if you need a copy of your institution's memorandum of understanding, a list of team members, or copy of your website accessibility review report.
