Accessibility & Usability
Many of the constraints included in the custom Red multisite are intended to assist in making UIC websites accessible and usable for all. UIC is committed to Accessibility and follows both the federal Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Illinois Information Technology Accessibility Act (IITAA).
Usability refers to the users’ experience on your website. This includes a range of factors that you control on your site: what content do your users need and want, how can they find it, how can they understand it and much more. Some of these factors are built into Red, such as how we use menus and breadcrumbs for navigation, and others are dependent on you. For more on usability, see the links below.
There are several ways to use images on Red, each component that uses images includes help text on minimal sizes needed. All images require Alt text for accessibility and have optional fields for captions and photo attribution.
Refer to the table below for the minimum requirements for the various image sizes used in Red.
