Website Accessibility Statement from the Parent Center Who Knows What?! Website
The Parent Center Who Knows What?! website has been developed by the Center for Parent Information and Resources (CPIR), a project funded under Cooperative Agreement H328R130014 between SPAN of New Jersey and the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) at the U.S. Department of Education. CPIR staff have made a conscious effort to make this website accessible to everyone. If you have problems accessing something on the website or have a suggestion for improving the website’s accessibility, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
This website follows WCAG 2.0 Level AA accessibility guidelines. As such, the site should be accessible to individuals who use various technology supports such as screen readers and screen magnification. Additional information about WCAG 2.0 Level AA accessibility guidelines may be found at: http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/.
MAKING THE TEXT LARGER OR SMALLER
The Parent Center Who Knows What?! website is designed to meet the needs of visitors who need text of different sizes. The content uses "relative sizing," so that you can use the browser’s controls or assistive technology to change the font size (the exact method will depend on your browser or assistive technology). Headings will always be larger than paragraph text, so that the visual display will be clear.
The site uses a "fluid" design, so that the text flows to match the space of the browser's window. If you change the size of the browser window or the text, the content will, over a wide range, remain within the right and left margins of the window.
The Parent Center Who Knows Website?! website includes images both to improve the appeal of the site and to convey how Parent Center staff work together and with families of children with disabilities. The site also includes the information conveyed by the image in the alt-text or long description of the image, so that those who cannot access the images have the full benefit of the site.
All menus on the website can be navigated using the mouse, keyboard, or touch screen.
HEADINGS AND SEMANTICS
If your assistive technology allows you to navigate via headings, you will find the Parent Center Who Knows What?! site supports that. Major sections are delineated by top-level headers, with subsections marked by subheadings in logical progression.
Links are represented by a different hex color than the regular text. Once visited, the link will clearly change to a different hex color.
If you have any problems navigating the website, please report them to CPIR staff at email@example.com. We appreciate your feedback and will respond to your concerns.
