Home / Web Accessibility
The Gazette is committed to facilitating the accessibility and usability of its Web site, thegazette.com, for all people with disabilities. Working with our internal accessibility experts, our product development team has and will continue to implement the relevant portions of the W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Level AA (WCAG 2.0 AA) as its web accessibility standard.
Our website is tested periodically with assistive technology such as screen readers and screen magnifiers, and with users with disabilities who use these technologies. Below are some of the steps we are taking under our accessibility policy: The Gazette employs experienced accessibility developers and experts to conduct a website accessibility audit and provide The Gazette web site developers or 3rd party contractors with specific recommendations to facilitate website accessibility and conformance with WCAG 2.0 AA standards.
Our company’s accessibility experts provide training periodically for our developers and 3rd party development teams on WCAG 2.0 AA and Section 508 conformance. On an ongoing basis, The Gazette will have periodic website accessibility audits, as well as end-user accessibility testing and evaluation of thegazette.com, conducted to provide prioritized feedback regarding conformance with WCAG 2.0 AA standards.
