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 508, WAI-ARIA, and WCAG 2.1 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.
Adobe Acrobat is required to view and print PDF documents that appear on this website. To download this program for free, visit the Adobe website.
Most modern browsers also have the ability to view and print PDFs without the need to install Adobe Acrobat.
To read PDF documents with a screen reader please visit the Adobe Accessibility website which provides useful tools and resources.
If you are using a Apple operating system (macOS, iOS), both have built-in text-to-speech and screen reading features. If you are using Microsoft Windows 10, it has similar built-in features.
