To accomplish this, we are implementing programs to help us meet guidelines set forth by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities 1990年法案. These guidelines outline a number of areas focused on web design and 内容,以下是目前正在解决的一些问题:

  • provide appropriate help text for images enabling message delivery even when the image 无法显示或查看
  • provide appropriate contrast in colors used within the message so that those who suffer from color blindness will be able to discern the intended message
  • provide navigation that works on a variety of devices and platforms from desktop computers 手机和平板电脑
 

采取的措施:

 

Using both people and technology, we have implemented a number of different tools to help us accomplish our goals and meet the challenges of providing content that 我们的用户在功能上是否可访问.

  • Before publishing a page, users at all levels are asked to check pages for compliance 因为它们是使用CMS中的工具发布的.  CMS提供了可访问性 checker that compares each page against requirements set by WCAG 2.0 A/AA可访问性. To further insure that our content is accessible, the Web服务 Team has initiated a program to review existing pages within college and departmental 网站s to check 查找可访问性错误,并在需要时进行更正.

  • We have implemented Usablenet Assistive technology to provide text-only versions of 整个页面 1rl6.jerusalemchristians.com 网站.  Each webpage has a text only link embedded in the header of the page as the 屏幕阅读器读取的第一个链接选项.  使用这个链接,读者就被引导了 to the text-only version of the page which is formatted for easier access to the page 内容及其导航.  对于没有使用屏幕阅读器的用户,只有文本 version of a page can be viewed by clicking the "text only" link provided under USA 页脚中的资源.
