Website Accessibility

We are consistently looking for ideas to improve the accessibility to the content on our website for all those who would like to view it.

The US Social Security Administration has these tips to increase your experience online if you are experiencing trouble viewing webpages.

  • Alter text and background colors.
  • Change the visibility of your mouse pointer. (Windows only.)
  • Increase magnification of your screen.
  • Increase the size of your computer text.
  • Make the computer read the web content out loud for you.
  • Use the keyboard to navigate through various screens.

Substitutes for your mouse and keyboard (such as recognition software like Dragon Naturally Speaking) can support in helping direct the internet and web page that you are looking at. This type of computer software allows the user to use voice triggered directions to navigate their screen.

For those that are deaf or hard of hearing, closes captioning is a fantastic option. It gives an accurate transcript for the audio of a video presentation. It also makes certain that the captions are synced to the tracks at the ideal time. Captions are usually displayed visually over the video, which helps those that are trying to view the content in a noisy environment or for those that are hard of hearing. The majority of video content on our website includes these captions, which can be switched on or off at your convenience.

Volume controls are also a great feature available for use. Computers, tablets, and mobile devices have controls to ensure you have the volume you are looking for. In addition, video and audio services have their own individual volume controls. By adjusting controls on both platforms, you can improve your listening experience based on your needs.
