Web Page Accessibility
UF has a strong commitment to facilitate the use of our Web pages by people with disabilities. We produce industry recognized, standards-based designs which are accessible to a range of text readers. Many of the sites at UF use these designs and we are actively moving to full implementation.
In addition to accessible design, we also provide a Web page text-only translator, Lift Transcoder. This software tool allows a user to translate any Web page into a text-only version. For instructions on how to use this in your site, go to http://text.ufl.edu/instructions.html.
