Who am I helping by making my content accessible? Potentially, everyone!
At Extension, we are working to strengthen agriculture, communities, and families by connecting trusted research to the adoption of best practices. Since we are helping to improve the lives and livelihoods for Arkansan citizens, farmers, and families - that means we are working for ALL Arkansans- not just people without disabilities.
By making our content as accessible as we are able, we are ensuring that our message is reaching as many people in our state as possible.
