Accessible Technology

Accessible Technology

The Accessible Technology website is a one-stop shop to find information on making websites, documents, and videos accessible to people with disabilities.  The entire CSULB community is responsible for providing accessible content.  

What is Accessibility? 

Accessibility means access; access to instructional materials, documents and websites for everyone, regardless of disability. At CSULB, we are working toward inclusiveness for students, faculty, staff, and the public, to provide information needed to succeed here at the Beach.  Learn  more about accessible technology.
