Web Accessibility Initiative Guidelines

In addition, the GeoPlatform.gov site is also routinely reviewed for alignment with the latest Web Accessibility Initiative Guidelines for W3C. The Web Accessibility Initiative Guidelines at www.W3.org/WAI/ define how browsers, media players, and other “user agents” support people with disabilities and work assistive technologies.

Images on the site contain ‘alt tags,’ which aid users who listen to the content of the site by using a screen reader, rather than reading the site. Likewise, elements have appropriate roles allowing them to be properly handled by text readers. Text transcripts accompany audio clips, and closed captioning is available on videos.

Users can get information regarding the accessibility of Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files from the Access Adobe website.

Trouble Using GeoPlatform.gov?

The GeoPlatform.gov website is being updated frequently to make it as accessible as possible. If you use assistive technology (such as a screen reader, eye tracking device, voice recognition software, etc.) and have difficulty accessing information on GeoPlatform.gov, please contact us and provide the URL (web address) of the material you tried to access, the problem you experienced, and your contact information. A GeoPlatform.gov team member will contact you and attempt to provide the information you’re seeking inside.
