SUNY New Paltz has been a leader in making Web sites accessibile to people with disabilities and older technology.
In 1999 the New York State Office for Technology issued Technology Policy 99-3: Universal Accessibility for NYS Web Sites. This policy requires that all New York State Agency Web sites provide universal accessibility for people with disabilities. In June 2004 New York State passed two new policies which replaces and supersedes OFT's earlier policies, 96-13 and 99-3. They are: Accessibility of State Agency Web-based Intranet and Internet Information and Applications Policy P04-002 and Mandatory Standard S04-001. These policies were revised on October 25, 2006.
According to the SUNY System Administration office, SUNY New Paltz was one of the few state agencies to meet the original September 30, 2000 deadline. We have continued to stay in compliance since that date.
