Why Accessibility Matters

Have you ever thought about how digital barriers affect us? Ensuring that the information we receive is accessible benefits everyone. Here you will find information on how the State of Minnesota ensures our information is accessible. The accessibility tips and resources in this section will help make your content and your organization more accessible.

Minnesota IT Services’ Office of Accessibility oversees the implementation of accessibility standards for Minnesota’s executive branch to provide resources that ensure applications, websites, and documents are accessible for everyone.
