Web & mobile accessibility. 

 Toward this end, we work to meet online usability and design requirements that are recommended by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) in their Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Level AA. We apply design standards that help our visitors identify, interpret, understand and interact with content on our website. 


Software recommendations and settings. 

 We adhere to the W3C’s globally recognized standards in order to provide content that is compatible with the most popular assistive technologies and web browsers. We always recommend using the most current version (or the version released just prior to the most recent) of manufacturer’s assistive technology applications, along with a current version of the browsers listed below. 


The individual manufacturer’s site provides information about how to obtain the most recent version. Access to assistance from local and state agencies or non-profit groups in your area may also be available.

  •  Microsoft Internet Explorer and JAWS 
  •  Mozilla Firefox and NVDA
