Accessibility in Afro Asian University

At Afro Asian University, we are committed to providing an inclusive digital environment that caters to the diverse needs of all our students, faculty, staff, and visitors. Our commitment to accessibility ensures that everyone, regardless of their abilities or disabilities, can access the information and services available on our website with ease and efficiency.

What is Accessibility?

Accessibility refers to the design and development of digital content, interfaces, and tools in a way that enables people with disabilities to use them effectively. Disabilities can range from visual, auditory, and motor impairments to cognitive limitations. Ensuring accessibility involves making our website user-friendly for people with these and other challenges.

Why Accessibility Matters
  1. Inclusivity and Equality: By making our website accessible, we ensure that all individuals have equal access to information and opportunities. This aligns with our values of inclusivity and equality at Afro Asian University.

  2. Legal Compliance: Adhering to accessibility standards helps us comply with various legal requirements and guidelines, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).

  3. Enhanced User Experience: Accessibility improvements often enhance the overall user experience for all visitors, not just those with disabilities. Features like clearer navigation, better contrast, and organized content can benefit everyone.

  4. Broadening Our Reach: An accessible website opens doors to a wider audience, including potential students, faculty, and partners who might otherwise be unable to engage with our content.

Key Accessibility Features on Our Website
  • Alternative Text for Images: All images on our website include descriptive alternative text (alt text) to ensure that users who rely on screen readers can understand the content and context of the images.

  • Keyboard Navigation: Our website is fully navigable using a keyboard. This is crucial for users with motor impairments who may find it difficult or impossible to use a mouse.

  • Screen Reader Compatibility: We have optimized our website to be compatible with screen readers, which read out the content on the screen for users with visual impairments. This includes proper use of HTML tags, headings, and landmarks.

  • Captioning and Transcripts: All video content on our website includes captions, and audio content is accompanied by transcripts. This ensures that users with hearing impairments can access multimedia content.

  • Contrast and Color Choices: We have selected color schemes and contrast levels that meet accessibility standards, making it easier for users with visual impairments to read and interact with our content.

  • Responsive Design: Our website is designed to be responsive, meaning it adjusts seamlessly to different screen sizes and devices. This benefits users who access our site from mobile devices or tablets.

Our Ongoing Commitment

Accessibility is an ongoing effort, and we are continually working to improve our website. We regularly audit our content and features to identify areas for enhancement. We welcome feedback from our users to help us in this process. If you encounter any accessibility barriers on our website, please contact us at, and we will address the issue promptly.

Training and Awareness

To maintain high accessibility standards, we provide training and resources for our web development team and content creators. This includes:

  • Regular Workshops: Conducting workshops and training sessions on the latest accessibility best practices and tools.
  • Guidelines and Checklists: Providing clear guidelines and checklists to ensure that new content and updates meet accessibility standards.
  • Community Engagement: Encouraging feedback from our university community and external accessibility experts to continually refine our approach.

At Afro Asian University, accessibility is more than a legal requirement; it is a reflection of our commitment to diversity, inclusion, and equal opportunity for all. By making our website accessible, we ensure that every member of our community can fully participate in and benefit from the wealth of resources and information we provide.
