Accessibility

Bakersfield College recognizes the importance and benefits of using technology to enhance student learning, especially as it helps students, faculty and staff communicate more effectively. With the use of technology comes the responsibility of ensuring that everyone has access to the same information. We provide some guidance and resources to assist you in preparing your electronic documents and content in the Accessibility Resources.

What does accessibility mean? It means that we prepare digital information in such a way that those needing assistive technology and those with disabilities can access the same information as everyone else. There are many disabilities and forms of assistive technology, we provide our digital information according to the WCAG 2.0 AA success criteria to make it accessible in accordance with Section 508 of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
