For the web, accessibility means that people with disabilities, including people with age-related impairments, can perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with websites and tools, and that they can contribute equally without barriers.
We are committed to improving the accessibility and usability of our websites for the greatest number of people possible. We are striving for the highest level of accessibility for people with disabilities and making every reasonable effort to ensure that all of our websites are accessible by persons who use assistive technologies such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
Currently, we are in the process of updating our websites to implement relevant portions of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0, as our web accessibility standard. The accessibility of our websites will be programmatically evaluated, as well as tested with assistive technology, including but not limited to screen readers and screen magnifiers. We will also test our sites with users with disabilities who use these technologies. These processes will facilitate accessibility for everyone, regardless of disability or device used to access information on our websites.
On an ongoing and periodic basis, we will audit our websites to ensure conformance with our web accessibility standard and/or to identify where support and guidance is needed to facilitate website accessibility efforts.
Please be aware that these efforts are active and ongoing. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact us by filling out the Website Accessibility Contact Form so that we may be of further assistance.
