Accessibility is a constantly developing and increasingly required area of technology. At USMEF, we make good-faith efforts to ensure we meet or exceed the the W3C Web Accessibility Level A Conformance requirements to further promote accessibility on not only our site but the web, in general. During the design and development of this website, we followed the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 and focused on:

  • Text Alternatives: Provide text alternatives for any non-text content so that it can be changed into other forms people need, such as large print, braille, speech, symbols or simpler language.

  • Time-based Media: Provide alternatives for time-based media.

  • Adaptable: Create content that can be presented in different ways (for example simpler layout) without losing information or structure.

  • Distinguishable: Make it easier for users to see and hear content including separating foreground from background.

  • Keyboard Accessible: Make all functionality available from a keyboard.

  • Enough Time: Provide users enough time to read and use content.

  • Seizures: Do not design content in a way that is known to cause seizures.

  • Navigable: Provide ways to help users navigate, find content, and determine where they are.

  • Readable: Make text content readable and understandable.

  • Predictable: Make Web pages appear and operate in predictable ways.

  • Input Assistance: Help users avoid and correct mistakes.

  • Compatible: Maximize compatibility with current and future user agents, including assistive technologies.

 This is a news organization and our website’s content is ever-changing. In the event we’ve missed something, we welcome your comments and suggestions.  

Ensuring Compatibility

We strongly recommend that every user who accesses the internet has the most up-to-date internet browser of their choice. This is to keep both security and accessibility as robust as possible.
