Accessibility of Ghent University websites

Ghent University wants its websites to be fully accessible to everyone. We take specific measures to make its online documents accessible to Internet users with visual, motor and auditory impairments but also to the elderly.

Therefore we follow the accessibility guidelines of the organization Anysurfer as well as possible. Read more about Anysurfer...

Accessibility benefits

  • Due to many similarities with other principles of good web design, accessible websites have benefits for all users.
  • Accessible websites are usable for everybody and are usually better suitable for smart phone and work in all web browsers.
  • Accessible websites score much better in result lists of search engines.

Problems with Accessibility?

Besides the central portal site, all local websites that use our central editing system meet most of the accessibility guidelines.

Nevertheless, you may encounter link references to websites that do not meet these guidelines.

Should you experience problems with the accessibility of certain websites, please report them to us.
