Accessibility Design GuidelinesOur website has been designed with the following accessibility guidelines in mind:
- The standard font used throughout the site has been chosen to be easily legible.
- Wherever possible, we use live text instead of graphics for all relevant, useful, and important information to increase ease of access.
- Our website has been designed to dynamically adjust to your monitor resolution so that it is viewable using most devices.
- No information is exclusively conveyed using color. This doesn't mean that colors are not used to organize information; instead it means there are also other, non-color dependent ways of doing this. We utilize high contrast colors in order to increase readability and have based our color palette to be easily readable under most forms of color-blindness.
- All images and hyperlinks, where appropriate, have an alternative text attribute. This means when an image or hyperlink is conveying important information its content is described with an alternative text.
- We have attempted specifically to comply with Section 508 referring to website accessibility standards.
