Everyone in the Office of Information and Technology and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has a role to play in creating digital content that everyone can use. Accessible content benefits everyone — with or without disabilities.

Start with this quick start guide to address common accessibility issues:

Responsibility for accessibility

The original creator of content, whether a VA employee or contractor, is individually responsible for ensuring that electronic materials they produce or acquire with VA funds — including but not limited to emails, documents, software development, and websites — meet accessibility requirements. Supervisors and Contracting Officers Representatives are responsible for ensuring that all individuals under their oversight comply with these requirements.

Where to get help
