Overall System Status:
Dartmouth is committed to making our web presence available to everyone. We aspire to the lofty goal of making our websites (those managed by Web Services) accessible to people with disabilities and across all devices types.
When developing your own sites, you can help make the Dartmouth digital environment accessible by adhering to the standards we have adopted for web accessibility.
Ensuring that all of our audiences access the same content means more than making sites technically accessible with separate content. As an example, YouTube videos, should provide an equivalent means of use for all via professional captioning. As part of the process of making digital Dartmouth accessible to everyone, some areas may need more improvement than others. If you notice you are struggling to access Dartmouth website content, please contact Web Support. We will investigate each problem where the resulting solution improves Dartmouth's web presence for all audiences.
Starting in 2012, all public videos on Dartmouth are captioned. If they are not now, they are likely in the captioning queue with some exceptions (such as videos with no audio).
Videos before 2012 are being captioned on a case by case basis. If you see a video that should be captioned earlier, please contact Web Services.
Web Services provides assistance and consultation to the Dartmouth community on how to achieve standards compliant websites. Please contact us.
