St. Paul’s Senior Services is committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities. We continue to make changes to improve the user experience for everyone and apply the relevant accessibility standards.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA.
Wherever possible, St. Paul’s Senior Services will aim to adhere to level AA of the WCAG 2.1 guidelines, which states that sites should be:
- Perceivable – Information and user interface components must be presentable to users in ways they can perceive.
- Operable – User interface components and navigation must be operable.
- Understandable – Information and the operation of user interface must be understandable.
- Robust – Content must be robust enough that it can be interpreted reliably by a wide variety of user agents, including assistive technologies.
As part of our efforts to achieve WCAG 2.1 AA compliance, we use Vivid Software Solutions LLC as an ongoing monitoring service.
Although we strive to adhere to the WCAG 2.1 Level AA standards for accessibility and usability, it may not always be possible to do so in all areas of the website. We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the website up to the same level of overall web accessibility.
