Approach to promoting the accessibility of our website

We have taken the following measures to promote compliance with accessibility requirements:

Additional explanatory notes

The University of Twente is aware of the importance of an easily accessible website. As an organisation with over 1000 website administrators and at least as many websites, meeting each and every accessibility requirement is a major challenge. System owners keep track of accessibility and advise where possible, but accept that 100% control is simply not feasible despite all their best efforts.
