As with our products, we strive to design solutions and experiences that are intuitive, welcoming, and comfortable. To that end, we are constantly working to improve the accessibility of our facilities, digital and physical. In keeping with the diversity of the communities we serve, we strive to offer diverse, equitable, and inclusive environments where everyone can share and revel in our vision.
Web Accessibility Guidelines
Between our passionate team of in-house developers and select third-party disability consultants, we have implemented a system to monitor and inform our accessibility efforts. The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) define requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. We aim to ensure that new, updated, and existing web content produced by our organization will meet WCAG 2.1, Level AA guidelines.
We recently conducted a comprehensive audit for
accessibility and identified several barriers that we are actively working to
address. Our progressive remediation efforts are targeting the largest and most
critical barriers first but will ultimately result in a detailed and mindful
rebuild of many elements of our site. In addition, we will work to incorporate
revised best-practices into our development pipeline and workflows so that our
site maintains a high standard of usability for all our visitors.
Because of the nature of our audit and testing procedure, we recommend using the following web browser and screen reader combinations for the most consistently optimized experience:
Windows: JAWS and Internet Explorer or NVDA and Firefox
Mac: VoiceOver and Safari or VoiceOver and Chrome
Mobile: VoiceOver for iPhone and TalkBack for Android devices
