WASHINGTON (AP) - The University of Cincinnati has reached an agreement with the Education Department to ensure that the school’s websites are more accessible to people with disabilities.

The agreement announced Thursday by the federal department’s Office of Civil Rights is aimed at putting the 42,600-student university in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Its review looked in part at accessibility to those with “sensory impairments who might use assistive technology to access the sites.”

The agreement requires that the school write and publish a notice of nondiscrimination, provide training to staff who work on websites and report back on its progress to the Education Department.

Last week, Youngstown State University reached a similar agreement with the Education Department to settle a complaint over disability access.
