We are always improving our website. We aim to meet or exceed universal design best practices and web accessibility standards. We follow and support Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA.
To provide accessible web experiences, we strive to:
- Make our content and navigation easy to see
- Make it easy to interact using a mouse, keyboard, and/or touch screens
- Provide text and visual alternatives for sounds
- Provide text and audio alternatives for visuals
- Support using assistive technologies to navigate and access content
- Support the use of native accessibility features on mobile devices and tablets
We have built the site so that there is meaning structured into the pages so they are as inclusive as we can make them. As a result, mobile and assistive technology users will have a better experience. We provide HTML headings to provide a hierarchy of the content on a page. These structures give screenreader users the information they need to navigate our content.
Blind and low-vision users often cannot see the images we use. It is important for our team to see that the meaning conveyed by those images is available in a textual form. We provide alt-text for images to help screenreader users to understand their meaning.
We want our users to get the most out of our site, so we leverage inclusive and flexible approaches. Where we can we have included Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) as they are a more accessible and mobile-friendly image format.
Every effort is made to have links written so that they make sense even out of context. For keyboard-only users, we allow keyboard navigation.
Users can adjust various parameters through the accessible menu to improve their browsing experience.
