'Web Content Accessibility' aims to make content accessible by everyone regardless of any disability or ability they may have. It is also about making content more usable to users in general.

UC is committed to providing web content and web services which are accessible to the widest possible audience and to provide, as far as possible, the same experience to everyone.

Unfortunately, it is not always possible to enable accessibility and usability to all areas of the website given the varying software or technology users may have.
