Accessibility Design Guidelines

Our website has been designed with the following accessibility guidelines in mind:

  • Wherever possible, we use live text instead of graphics to reduce the download time of pages and increase your control.
  • 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.
  • 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 508WAI-ARIA, and WCAG 2.0 website accessibility standards.
  • If you have difficulty accessing the site or have any comments or feedback, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Many popular browsers and operating systems contain built-in accessibility tools beyond what is offered on this website.
