Our website aspires to meet the accessibility guidelines of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA.
WCAG 2.0 is an industry standard which covers a wide range of recommendations for making website content more accessible. Following these guidelines helps to make our site accessible to a wider range of people with disabilities, including blindness and low vision, deafness and hearing loss, learning disabilities, cognitive limitations, limited movement, speech disabilities, photosensitivity and combinations of these. The guidelines provide tests to ensure that web content is “perceivable, operable, understandable and robust”.
The current release has a few outstanding items that we are addressing in order to be fully compliant. For example, for those using screen readers, some message boxes open at the end of the page.
We continue to work on improvements to the accessibility of our site. For help navigating, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
