This section highlights accessibility in major enterprise applications offered across CUNY, with information and links to the vendors’ sites on ways to use these applications accessibly.


Blackboard is a web-based course management program that enables students and faculty to participate in online classes and/or utilize online course materials to compliment face-to-face learning.



CUNYfirst (Fully Integrated Resources and Services Tool) – from anywhere, anytime – uses the latest technology to serve our students, faculty and staff.



The Microsoft Accessibility website provides features that make it easier to see, hear, and use your computer.


CUNY Virtual Bookstore

The CUNY Virtual Bookstore integrates with CUNYfirst’s online registration function so that students can find and purchase all required books and course materials when they register for a course. The Akademos platform provides easier access to the books required for each course, in a wide variety of formats, and at the best possible price.
