IT Accessibility Resources Around Campus

The University of California is committed to providing an electronic environment that is accessible to everyone, including individuals with disabilities. At UCLA, the responsibility for computer and information accessibility is shared by campus computing facilities, information providers, and departments. This article highlights several accessibility resources available to our campus community.

ACCESSIBILITY RESOURCES FOR STUDENTS

The Center for Accessible Education (CAE) offers educational accommodation assistance to students with temporary or permanent disabilities. Its goal is to assist students in meeting their educational challenges.

SensusAccess - SensusAccess is a free file format-converting service that UCLA has licensed for current UCLA students, faculty, and staff. It is a particularly useful tool for individuals with disabilities needing access to specific file formats.
 

ACCESSIBILITY RESOURCES FOR FACULTY & STAFF

Disabilities and Computing Program (DCP) – The DCP provides website accessibility evaluation services for the campus and recommends remediation steps, if necessary. Requests for all DCP services are coordinated through the Employee Disability Management Program. For more information, please contact dcp@oit.ucla.edu.

Employee Disability Management Services (EDMS), an office within Insurance and Risk Management, provides interactive consultation to staff, faculty and departments to identify and implement reasonable accommodations for employees with a disability. For staff and faculty seeking IT accessibility, EDMS works with other departments on campus to arrange for loaner equipment so employees can sample accessibility programs. For more information, please call (310) 794-6948.
