WCAG: Access to a Physical and Digital World

We understand that barriers can present themselves in many ways. Much like a step preventing many people from accessing a building, content available on the internet might be difficult to access for someone with a disability. The goal of web accessibility and WCAG guidelines is to establish inclusive access to information for people of all abilities. This website has been designed to Level AAA as established by the Accessibility Initiative of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Our friends at Brightworks have ensured that specific web accessibility principles have been adhered to in the design of this website. These web accessibility principles include: perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust.
