Accessible technology includes electronic documents (including emails), websites (including Canvas, Sharepoint, etc.), videos, software applications, and hardware devices that can be used effectively by everyone, including students, faculty, staff, and visitors with disabilities. The CPTC Accessible Technology Committee is working toward making sure that the technologies we choose, use, and create at CPTC are fully accessible in accordance with WA Policy #188 and Ferdal regulations.
To report a concern related to Accessible Technology at CPTC, or to provide feedback, contact Jessica Carey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: The video above uses the term "websites" very broadly to mean anything viewed by an individual online. This video includes stories from individuals who are not able to access class materials (Canvas, 3rd party software), library software, and internal digital materials.
