In accordance with current Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) standards (http://www.hrsa.gov/about/508resources.html), our goal is to improve accessibility to users with visual, motor, or cognitive disabilities. We strive to meet or exceed accessibility requirements in the following areas:
- Images. This website provides equivalent text for images that convey information.
- Multimedia. This website limits the use of multimedia (i.e., presentations that include components such as text, graphics, video, animation, and sound), and, where multimedia is used, the site provides equivalent text for the presentation.
- Color. This website does not rely on color to convey information.
- Style sheets. This website does not require associated style sheets (i.e., pre-designated templates that define the layout of a Web page) to be viewed.
- Image maps. This website provides equivalent text for images (e.g., navigation bars) that perform functions when selected (e.g., open a new window, navigate through the site).
- Tables. This website provides row and column headers for data tables.
- Frames. This website does not include frames (i.e., separate sections of the display area that are generated from different Web pages).
- Motion. This website sites does not include motion that causes the screen to flicker outside an acceptable range (i.e., higher than 2Hz and lower than 55Hz).
- Text-only pages. A text-only equivalent web page will be provided when a compliance cannot be accomplished in any other way.
- Applets and plug-ins. This website avoids the use of applets (i.e., programs designed to be executed from within another program) and plug-ins (i.e., programs that add features to a standard browser), and, when such programs are used, the site includes links to external websites that provide such applets or plug-ins via download.
- Forms. This website allows for easy access to and completion of forms.
