Digital Accessibility

The importance of the digitalization of all areas of life is growing rapidly. Thus, the importance of digital accessibility is growing simultaneously. In the light of diversity and the consequential equal treatment of all people, the online contents should also be accessible to all target groups, including people with limited capabilities, if possible. Therefore, accessibility of the web presence has been the subject of political and social discussions for years. There is agreement that especially public authorities should act as role models in this regard. Clausthal University of Technology recognized the importance of the topic early-on and has since given much thought to the possibilities of barrier-free design of its web presence.
