Accessibility Policy

Texas A&M University at Qatar is committed to making its websites accessible to all users.

Images on the site contain ‘alt tags’ with descriptions of the image, which aid users who listen to the content of the site by using a screen reader, rather than reading the site.

Major reports and other special publications that are made available on the University’s website are generally available in html. In some cases we may publish a document using Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). When posting PDF files, we may accompany the link to the PDF with a link to an online conversion of the PDF to HTML. PDFs without this accompanying link can be converted using Adobe’s Online PDF to HTML Converter.

To improve the accessibility of our website we test any major redesign with lynx, a text-only browser, and other web tools. The results of these reviews have been incorporated into the website. Texas A&M at Qatar welcomes comments on how to improve the site’s accessibility for users with disabilities. Texas A&M University at Qatar is committed to making its websites compliant with Conformance Level “Double-A” of the World Wide Web Consortium accessibility rating by conforming to all Priority 1 and 2 checkpoints defined in the Guidelines.

This policy applies to webpages served from the Texas A&M at Qatar domain. All domains hosted by the Texas A&M at Qatar are strongly encouraged to also follow these standards. These minimum standards and our ability to ensure internal compliance is periodically reviewed and may be enhanced in the future.
