This Accessibility Policy applies to all aspects of Signal59's website and online presence, including but not limited to the main website, subdomains, and any web-based applications or services provided by Signal59.
Standards and Guidelines
To make our website accessible, we are implementing the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 level AA as the standard for our website. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities and ensure compatibility with assistive technologies. We strive to meet or exceed these guidelines to provide an inclusive experience for all users.
Here are some of the accessibility features we are incorporating into our website:
1. Alternative Text: We provide alternative text descriptions for images and other visual elements to ensure users with visual impairments can understand the content.
2. Keyboard Navigation: Our website can be navigated using keyboard controls, enabling users who have difficulty using a mouse or other pointing devices to navigate through the site.
3. Clear and Consistent Layout: We have designed our website with a clear and consistent layout to facilitate easy navigation and readability.
4. Color Contrast: We have considered color contrast ratios to ensure that the content is distinguishable and readable for individuals with visual impairments.
5. Descriptive Links: Hyperlinks are descriptive and make sense out of context, providing users with screen readers or text-only browsers the ability to understand the purpose of each link.
6. Video Captions and Transcripts: Whenever possible, we provide captions and transcripts for videos to make the content accessible to users who are deaf or hard of hearing.
7. Responsive Design: Our website is designed to be responsive, adapting to different screen sizes and resolutions, making it accessible across various devices.
We conduct accessibility audits and tests to identify and address accessibility issues on our website. We employ a combination of automated tools and manual testing to ensure ongoing compliance with accessibility standards.
