A Best What
This policy and procedure include specific directions for a variety of topics related to websites. The topics range from how website domain names are registered to which links are required to appear in footers.
In regards to accessibility, all websites are required to meet all WCAG A and AA criteria.
UTA uses Siteimprove as a reporting tool to advise if we have any A/AA issues with our pages. Employees can log into Siteimprove through myapps.uta.edu and their UTA Single Sign On credentials. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance in gaining access to reports for the appropriate websites.
