The Burton Blatt Institute (BBI), Syracuse University, recently unveiled its new Web site. The site’s launch was also intended to correlate with the 22nd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), celebrated July 26. According to a BBI news release, the new Web site is designed to exhibit the benefits offered by BBI’s research, program development, and policy guidance.
The new site also features Innovation Areas, created to allow users to quickly identify BBI’s focus areas of work, including Community Participation and Economic Participation. Users can also access other resources related to these focus areas.
Anthony Adornato, BBI director of communications, reportedly led the year-long Web site re-design project with the goal of creating, “an engaging online presence with both visual appeal and ease of navigation,” Adornato says.
The release notes that the site was also designed to provide a significant number of accessibility features to complement the use of assistive technologies. This can help expand the site’s availability to a broader audience, BBI adds. The site is also Section 508 compliant and has been tested under different viewing conditions, including with voice or text output, and color contrast for those who have low vision or color-blindness.
