OBEL is committed to promoting and ensuring accessibility in research. This means that we make every effort to provide equitable access to our research communications. But we are still learning! We continue to learn more about guidelines (i.e., Web Content Accessibility Guideline: https://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG21/quickref/?versions=2.0), policy (i.e., Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA)) and accessibility tools (https://uwaterloo.ca/web-resources/resources/accessibility/tools) to help us continuously improve the accessibility of our science communication.
In this blog, we highlight some of the ways we’re aiming to enhance accessibility in the communication of our research on the web and we include some links that we hope you will find useful. We’d love to hear from you (@BiomechErgoLab) if you have tips to share too!
