Accessibility Policy

We maintain an accessible website as part of our commitment.
As part of our practice's commitment to accessibility, our website is made accessible to the widest audience possible, regardless of technology or ability. The website has been designed and developed to be accessible and easy to use according to all available standards and guidelines.

Website standards

The website complies with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines set forth by the Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C). Consequently, this website strives to meet the requirements for Level AAA and Level AA compliance.

Accessibility features of this website

  • Screen readers – To assist those who are blind or visually impaired, our site provides screen reading functionality.
  • Code Compliance – This site was built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS. Standard-compliant code ensures that the site displays correctly in current browsers and that it will continue to display correctly in future browsers.
  • Text Alternative – With the exception of decorative imagery, all non-text content presented to users has a text alternative that provides an equivalent level of information. A screen reader could then present the alternate information to the user instead of the image.
  • ARIA Landmarks – We use ARIA landmarks to identify specific parts of the page, allowing screen readers to jump to the appropriate parts.
  • Skip to Main Content – Every page on the site features a skip to main content link, allowing users to jump directly to main content, thus saving the user from hearing the header content again and again.
  • Accessible Forms – Our forms are formatted in a way that associates labels with their form controls, making it easier for screen readers to display the form information.
  • Headings and Lists – We use the appropriate markup for headings and lists, namely h1-h6 and ol, ul, and dl, respectively. Using heading markup, assistive technologies will be able to display a user's heading status. As screen readers identify the code they can either announce the heading with the level, beep or use another auditory indicator. There are assistive technologies that enable users to navigate from one list to another or from item to item.
  • CSS – We use CSS to control how texts appear visually. It will allow the users to modify the text's visual characteristics to meet their needs via the user agent. The text characteristics include aspects such as size, color, font family, and placement relative to other text.
  • Resizing Text – Text can be enlarged without assistive technology by up to 200 percent without losing its content or functionality.
  • Raster Images – We avoid using text in raster images, so users agents can read all text in the page aloud and apply custom style sheets to make it easier to read.
  • Keyboard Interface – This site is designed to provide users with a keyboard interface if they are unable to operate a mouse. You can navigate the website with the keyboard on your computer or by using other assistive devices. Content can be accessed by means of the keyboard, thus requiring no particular timings for individual keystrokes. When the functionality of content can be controlled through the keyboard or keyboard interface, it can be used by those who are blind, as well as by those who have to use alternate keyboards or input devices that act as keyboard emulators, such as on-screen keyboards or speech input software.
  • Flashing Content – Content for this site should not flash more than 3 times per second, or at the very least flash less than the red flash threshold and the general flash threshold. Occasionally, bright flashes caused by these effects can lead to seizures.

  • Page Titles – The titles of our web pages describe what each page is about. A title that describes a piece of content helps users locate it, navigate it, and understand it. By referring to Web pages in descriptive titles, users can easily identify what pages they are visiting and know when the site has changed. In addition to identifying a Web page with its title, the content of the page does not need to be read or interpreted. When site maps or search results include accurate, descriptive titles, users can identify the content they need more quickly. Link text that includes descriptive titles helps users find more precisely the content they are looking for.

  • Locating Content – A set of Web pages can be located in different ways. Our site is equipped with breadcrumbs and sitemaps. By doing this, users are able to find the relevant content according to their requirements. Choosing the right technique is based on factors such as ease of understanding and ease of use.

  • Highlighting – Our website allows for the user agent to highlight various components when they receive attention.

  • Highlighting – Our website allows for the user agent to highlight various components when they receive attention.

  • Default Language – Each Web page can be programmed to specify its default human language. Speech synthesizers with multilingual support allow the voice to adapt to changing pronunciations and phrases according to the language.

  • Component Focus – Any of our components that receive focus do not launch a new window in response to that focus, which means that a new form will not be submitted automatically when a component is focused.

  • Consistent Navigation – Our website navigation is consistent throughout. Navigational elements can be more reliably positioned using this technique.

  • Form Input Errors – Input errors are automatically detected by forms, and the user is notified in text format if an item is incorrect.

  • Proper Coding – All elements must have start and end tags, nesting must conform to the element's specification, all attributes should not be duplicated, and IDs should be unique. It is known that assistive technologies experience issues with the following errors when they attempt to parse content, where editing tags are not used in the prescribed format.

  • Portable Document Format (PDFs) – This website includes documents in PDF, some of which may be downloaded. These files can only be opened with Adobe Acrobat. Acrobat is available for free download. Download Adobe Acrobat.
