General Statement

Every effort is made to ensure that pages and links to information are accessible. We used Section 508 and WCAG 2.0 Best Practices as guidelines and standards for this website.

Breadcrumbs

Breadcrumbs are used on the site. Breadcrumbs are a series of links that show the trail back to the home page. Headings Proper Headings are used on this website to show the hierarchy and organization of information on each page. Headings are used to help navigate through the pages.

Links

Every effort has been made to write links that are unique and that make sense when read out of context. Links are designed to open in the same window to avoid user disorientation. Return to the previous page by clicking the back button on your web browser.

Using Magnification Tools

Users who have low-vision and need to magnify the entire page may find that using “Magnify Text” (button is located in a footer of every CCSU webpage) functionality works better for them as there are more options for magnification strength and other display settings.

To magnify only certain areas of the site, website users are recommended to use the zoom-in hotkeys available in most browsers.

Windows
Press the “CTRL” + “+” keys at the same time to magnify
Keep pressing the “+” keys to continue magnifying
Use the “CTRL” + “-” keys to undo the magnification
Use the “CTRL” + “0” keys to return to default

Mac
Press the Apple Command button + “+” keys to magnify
Press Apple Command + “–” keys to undo the magnification
Press Apple Command + “0” keys to return to default

Specifying Contrast Settings

Some users need higher or a different color contrast to see content on pages. For example, users may find it easier to see light text on a dark background, dark text on a light background, or in grayscale. Please use “Inverse Text” functionality (button is located in a footer of every CCSU webpage) to inverse color of text for easier reading.
