Our Accessibility Statement

The Center for Vision Loss is committed to facilitating the accessibility and usability of its website for people with disabilities. This website was rebuilt completely in 2020 through the services of an accessibility consultant, Accessibility Shield. Our goal was to provide website accessibility to all users – including those with special needs such as visual, hearing, cognitive and motor impairments. We are committed to improving the accessibility of this website constantly to ensure it provides equal access to all users.

 

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1

Wherever possible, this site will adhere to a conformance level of AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1). These guidelines outline four main principles that state 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

Please be aware that our efforts are ongoing. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of our site, or if you’d like additional assistance please contact us at dennis.zehner@centerforvisionloss.org or by telephone at 610.433.6018, Ext. 241. If you do encounter an accessibility issue, please be sure to specify the web page in your email, and we will make all reasonable efforts to make that page accessible for you. We try to respond to feedback within five (5) business days.
