Requirement •  Explanation

Accessibility Initiative

Section 508 Requirement

(k) Text Only Alternative:
A text-only page, with equivalent information or functionality, shall be provided to make a Web site comply with the provisions of this part, when compliance cannot be accomplished in any other way. The content of the text-only page shall be updated whenever the primary page changes.

Explanation 

Creating a text-only version of a Web site should be done when there is no other way to make the content accessible, or when it offers significant advantages over the main version. The text-only version must provide the same information and functionality of the main version.

Keep in mind that having a text-only version of a Web site does not solve the problems of accessibility. Although text-only sites are helpful for blind and mobile device users, such sites do not address the needs of those with hearing impairments, learning disabilities, etc.

Please contact the Web developer for further information regarding text-only pages.

For your convenience, you may also wish to download a printer-friendly Section 508 checklist (pdf).
For additional assistance with this requirement, send an email to accessibility@winthrop.edu.
