Web Accessibility

The Juilliard School is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. We are working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and continue to implement new technology that provides all users with a rich experience and equal access to content.

Supported Browsers

The Juilliard School website supports the current and prior major releases of Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari on computers. On mobile devices, you can access the website using Safari, Chrome, or native ICS Android browser.

Browsing Tips

Websites often have text that is difficult to read, controls that are difficult to click, or audio and videos that are difficult to hear. Fortunately your computer can be customized to improve your web browsing experience. Please check out W3C Better Web Browsing Tips at http://www.w3.org/WAI/users/browsing and BBC My Web My Way for more accessibility topics at http://www.bbc.co.uk/accessibility/.

508 Compliance

508 compliance means that all users, regardless of disability status, can access technology. It’s a way to break down barriers and provide new opportunities for all Internet users.

Compliance standards are set by Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 that requires federal agencies to provide software and website accessibility to people with disabilities. When websites are 508 Compliant, they are accessible to all users. This can mean that they are compatible with assistive technology, such as screen readers.

Current Status

The Juilliard School is in the midst of a comprehensive web redesign. One of the goals of this project is to make the new site natively compliant with WCAG 2.0 and ADA Section 508.
