Welcome to the Global Accessibility Awareness (2023) page here at the University of Mississippi!
We aim to share accessibility best practices in order to foster inclusive education and an engaging learning environment here at the University of Mississippi, as well as to celebrate the upcoming Global Accessibility Awareness Day.
If you create and/or share documents, teach a course, or have an interest in accessibility, this is for you!
This will be a series of BYOD (Bring Your Own Document) sessions focused on basic digital document accessibility issues and best practices. Sessions will cover common but simple to fix issues with digital documents. Have something you want to fix? Sign up for one or more sessions below and bring your files.
