Accessibility Statement for The Family & Intercultural Resource Center

The Family & Intercultural Resource Center is committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities. We are continually improving the user experience for everyone and applying the relevant accessibility standards.

Measures to support accessibility:

The Family & Intercultural Resource Center takes the following measures to ensure accessibility:

  • Include it as part of our mission statement.
  • Integrate it into our procurement practices.
  • Appoint an officer and/or ombudsperson.
  • Provide continual training for our staff.
  • Include people with disabilities in our design personas.

 

Conformance status

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. The Family & Intercultural Resource Center is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.

Additional considerations:

Although our goal is WCAG 2.1 Level AA conformance, we have also applied some Level AAA Success Criteria: Images of text are only used for decorative purposes. Re-authentication, after a session expires, does not cause loss of data. Some videos have sign language interpretation.
