Commitment to Accessibility

Accessible.org is committed to accessibility and ensuring that all users of this site, including those with disabilities and their companies, have an equal opportunity to participate in and benefit from all information and online offerings of Accessible.org.

​Should you have any difficulty accessing this website in any manner, please do not hesitate to email us at contact@accessible.org.

Accessibility Standards

We have created our website to meet our own Web Accessibility Standards (WAS) which largely incorporate the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 AA.  We are currently researching and working to improve our website to be even sharper, clearer, and incorporate all of the best practices from HTML5, CSS, and PHP.  We will never stop trying to improve access to our digital offerings.

Actions Taken

​Some of the measures taken to make Accessible.org accessible​ include:

  • adding alt text to all images
  • ensuring a minimum 4.5:1 color ratio for all text
  • using descriptive text links and headers
  • maintaining a consistent and predictable ​layout and organization
  • eliminating all automatic content (e.g. pop-ups, auto-playing media)
  • including a skip to navigation link
  • using descriptive anchor text for links
  • incorporating a focus indicator

As well as several other measures.

Beyond our existing remediation measures, we continually review our website to ensure we adhere to best practices in web accessibility.

Audit and Certification

As a company who provides independent audits and certification for website accessibility, we are in the unique position of auditing and certifying our own website, Accessible.org and we have done so.  We have made repeated efforts to review and re-review Accessible.org to ensure it complies with our own Web Accessibility Standards and the general best practices of website accessibility.

Further, we voraciously research web accessibility best practices and methods to improve our knowledge and stay up to date on the latest news and information.

Legal Requirements

Through our genuine and good faith commitment and devotion to accessibility, we believe we not only meet but exceed the digital accessibility requirements imposed by Title I, II, & III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 & 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.
