Our Commitment to Web Accessibility

We are committed to providing a fully accessible website experience for all users of all abilities, including those who rely on assistive technologies like screen readers, screen enlargement software, and alternative keyboard input devices to navigate the web.

Ongoing Efforts to Ensure Accessibility

We follow the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.1 as our guiding principle for determining accessibility. These are internationally agreed-upon standards that cover a wide range of recommendations and best practices for making content useable. As we add new pages and functionality to our website, all designs, code, and content entry practices are checked against these standards.

Website accessibility is an ongoing process. We continually test content and features for WCAG 2.1 Level AA compliance and remediate any issues to ensure we meet or exceed the standards. Testing of our website is performed by our team members using industry-standard tools such as color contrast analyzers, keyboard-only navigation techniques, and Flesch-Kincaid readability tests.

Accessibility Features On Our Website

The following is a list of items we have included in our website to improve its accessibility:

  • Adequate color contrast to ensure readibility
  • Keyboard-only navigation throughout the navigation, dropdowns and through the page outline
  • Easy “skip to content” button for screen-reader users
  • Alternative text to describe images for visually impaired users
  • Proper ordered use of headings to create a sensible content outline on each page
  • Plain language text avoiding technical terms or ‘jargon’ wherever possible

This is part of our broader effort to make everyone’s experience on the web a welcoming and enjoyable one. Please note that while we make every effort to provide information accessible for all users, we cannot guarantee the accessibility of third party websites or files to which we may link.
