This website strives to comply with the best methods and standards as outlined in Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act and level AA of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. These guidelines describe how to produce web content accessible to people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will make the web more user-friendly for all people.
1. Website Accessibility & Practice Accessibility Statement
We are continuously working to improve the accessibility of content on our site. Below, you’ll find a few recommendations to help make your browsing experience more accessible:
If you have trouble seeing web pages, the US Social Security Administration offers these tips for optimizing your computer and browser to improve your online experience.
- Use your computer to read web pages out loud
- Use the keyboard to navigate screens
- Increase text size
- Magnify your screen
- Change background and text colors
- Make your mouse pointer more visible (Windows only)
If you are looking for mouse and keyboard alternatives, speech recognition software such as Dragon Naturally Speaking may help you navigate web pages and online services. This software allows the user to move focus around a web page or application screen through voice controls.
2. Closed Captioning.
Closed captioning is a tool that provides a transcript for the audio segment of a video presentation synchronized with the video and audio tracks. Captions are generally visually displayed over the video, which benefits people who are deaf and hard of hearing, and anyone who cannot hear the audio due to noisy environments. Most of our video content includes captions. Learn how to turn closed captioning on and off in YouTube.
3. Volume Controls.
Your computer, tablet, or mobile device has volume control features. Each video and audio service has additional volume controls. Try adjusting both your device’s volume controls and your media players’ volume controls to optimize your listening experience.
