Web Accessibility

What is web accessibility?

In general, accessibility means the ability of computer systems, in the forms and within the limits permitted by technological know-how, to provide services and information that can be used, without discrimination, even by those who require assistive technologies or special configurations due to disabilities.   Achieving accessibility in a web environment means allowing any user to access the site, and use the services and information it provides regardless of operating environment, navigation tools and browser configuration.

Accessibility of the unimi.it site

In August and September 2020, we conducted a self-assessment of the web accessibility of the unimi site and of individual degree programme sites, following the "IT Tool Accessibility Guidelines" (issued by AGID and last updated on 20 December 2019), and using the self-assessment form provided in Annex 2. The self-assessment complies with the web accessibility law “Disposizioni per favorire e semplificare l'accesso degli utenti e, in particolare, delle persone con disabilità agli strumenti informatici”.

The findings are available in the attached web accessibility statement, and form the basis for further website adaptation planning.
