Accessible web content: alternative presentation for an image

People who cannot see images must not be excluded. The above applies in particular if the image is important.

Accessible web content: Good contrast improves the legibility of text and graphs

1. Contrast requirements for the colour of the text and its background The interpretation of the content must not be based on colours alone.

Accessible web content: Easy readability for better understanding

Text appearance affects readability If you create content directly on the web using a publishing tool, you may not be able to influence the appearance of the text very much. Even when formatting is available, it is usually better to stick with the default definitions: if the admin later changes the default definitions service-wide, items […]

Remember to take your important files with you when you are about to graduate

When you graduate (or otherwise stop studying at the OUAS), you can no longer use the services provided to the students of the Oamk.
