Accessible Web Sites

Keep the needs of visitors with disabilities and those with older technology in mind by following the New York State Web Accessibility Standards (June 2004). See for detailed information on creating pages that are in compliance with these standards. Here are some minimum guidelines for creating accessible Web sites:

  • Use the ALT attribute to provide a text alternative for all visual and auditory content, including images, INPUT elements, and APPLET elements.
  • Don't rely on color alone to convey information. (Avoid: the list in green represents trains leaving at 8 a.m., the list in red represents trains leaving at 10 p.m.)
  • Ensure that pages are functional even when scripts, applets, and other new technologies are turned off or not supported by the browser. Provide text equivalents to provide the same functionality.
  • Use client-side image maps instead of server-side maps so that the ALT attribute can be used to label map areas.
  • Do not use frames. Frames are difficult for the average viewer to maneuver, even harder for a novice Web developer to code properly, and nearly impossible for people with disabilities to navigate.
  • When dowonloadable documents, such as PDF files, are used, a link to accessible HTML or text version(s) will be made available.
