Accessibility statement

Both in government work and here at home, accessibility is never done. Learn how we approach accessibility on our website and projects.

Serving people of all abilities

We are passionate about improving government technology to serve the public better, and that includes people of all backgrounds, situations, and abilities. In fact, we recently made a pledge to advance accessibility in all our projects through a series of actions spanning all practice areas.

See our Accessibility Pledge

Similarly, we want our website to also be accessible to as many people as possible. This page explains what we’ve done towards better accessibility on our site and how you can give feedback.

User experience on our site

People using our website should be able to:

  • Zoom in up to 200% without the text spilling off the screen
  • Navigate the website using just a keyboard
  • Listen to the website using a screen reader

What we've done

Techniques and tools we have used to make our site more accessible include:

Future goals

We know there is more that we can do to make our website more accessible, so this is a work in progress. Our goal is to achieve or exceed WCAG 2.1 AA, recognized globally as the standard best practice.

Our current site does not support:

  • Personalization of line height or fonts
  • Common high contrast settings for low vision users
  • Low contrast mode for dyslexic users
  • Viewing the site in light or dark mode
  • Changing colors, contrast levels, and fonts

We have also identified that Reader Mode has trouble on some pages. And although PDFs are used sparingly on our site, some do exist. We want to make these accessible, or ensure the content is available in HTML format.

Realizing that accessibility is never “done”, we plan to keep scanning the site and improving it over time. Our plans include:

  • Testing the site with speech recognition software
  • Inviting users who are living with disabilities to evaluate our site

Get in touch

The web is constantly changing. We need feedback from our users on how we can improve. If you run into barriers on our site, please let us know.
