Assistive Technology at MVCC Libraries

Many accessibility features are integrated into our website and databases, such as headings, text-to-speech options, ADA compliant PDFs, and captioned/transcribed videos. Any digital content created by library staff is expected to meet best practices as recommended by WCAG 2.0 and SUNY EIT.

Supplemental technology has been purchased to help fill in the gaps to make other library resources accessible.
