Web accessibility cheat sheets

The National Center on Disability and Access to Education (External Site) (NCDAE) provides many resources to help make your content accessible.

Their cheat sheets are one-page accessibility resources, and have been developed to assist anyone who is creating accessible content. These free resources are catered to less-technical individuals, such as faculty and staff.

NCDAE encourages institutions to use these cheat sheets as part of their own accessibility efforts. If you wish to use any of these resources, please maintain the GOALS/NCDAE branding while distributing them.
