Our Commitment to Providing Accessible Content
We want everyone who visits the Community Capital of Vermont website to feel welcome and find a rewarding website user experience.
What does this mean?
We have been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 to help guide us in making web content more accessible for people with disabilities, those who use assistive technology, and to make the web more user friendly for everyone.
These guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA), and we’ve chosen Level A as the target for our website.
How are we building accessible content?
Many of the documents and pages on the website are in HTML or plain text formats. These formats are generally accessible to people using screen readers and other assistive technology. By using proper headline and paragraph HTML tags we’re able to build content that’s both accessible to those using this technology, and create a natural visual hierarchy for those browsing with a traditional browser. In this way we strive to build content that can be read by as many people as possible, on as many devices as possible.
Accessibility for Non-HTML Content
Some content that appears on the website is not HTML or in a plain text format. This rich-media content has unique considerations when building for accessibility and has been treated differently.
Accessibility Statement Restrictions
