NYU LibGuide Accessibility

A comprehensive resource for achieving digital accessibility best practice for NYU Libraries Research Guides.


Galleries and/or Slides don't auto play (No content autoplays)

LibGuides has a box type called Gallery. Be aware that there are additional settings you’ll need to check to ensure that the gallery is accessible.

  • Any original content you add to a gallery should be accessible (slide decks, image, documents, etc.) 
  • In the gallery box settings the “automatically play” option should be set to off
  • Be aware of how embedded content behaves on your page.
    • Make sure you can control all actions of a media player or slide deck using just your keyboard.
    • Nothing should autoplay
