The Carlsbad Chamber Community Foundation is committed to ensuring digital accessibility for individuals with disabilities. We strive to provide an inclusive and user-friendly online experience for all visitors to our website. We have taken steps to ensure that our website complies with the relevant accessibility standards and guidelines.
- Alternative Text: We aim to provide alternative text descriptions for all meaningful images on our website, enabling screen readers to convey the information to users with visual impairments.
- Keyboard Navigation: Our website is designed to be navigable using keyboard controls alone, allowing users who rely on assistive technologies such as screen readers or voice recognition software to access all the content.
- Clear Structure and Headings: We use appropriate heading tags to structure our web pages, making it easier for users of assistive technologies to navigate and understand the content hierarchy.
- Consistent and Readable Fonts: We have chosen font styles and sizes that are clear and easy to read, ensuring that all users, including those with visual impairments, can access the information on our website without difficulty.
- Color Contrast: We have taken care to maintain a sufficient color contrast between text and background elements, following WCAG 2.1 guidelines, to enhance readability and ensure that content is accessible to users with low vision or color blindness.
- Descriptive Links: We use descriptive text for hyperlinks, providing context and clarity to assistive technology users when navigating our website.
Accessibility with UserWay
Carlsbad Chamber Community Foundation makes available the UserWay Website Accessibility Widget that is powered by a dedicated accessibility server. The software allows the site to improve its compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1).
Enabling the Accessibility Menu
UserWay's accessibility menu can be enabled by clicking the accessibility menu icon that appears on the corner of the page. After triggering the accessibility menu, please wait a moment for the accessibility menu to load in its entirety.
We are continuously working to improve the accessibility of our website. This includes conducting regular audits and assessments, as well as engaging with accessibility consultants to ensure that we meet or exceed the relevant accessibility standards. In an ongoing effort to continually improve and remediate accessibility issues, we also regularly scan our site with UserWay's Accessibility Scanner to identify and fix every possible accessibility barrier on our site. Despite our efforts to make all pages and content on UserWay fully accessible, some content may not have yet been fully adapted to the strictest accessibility standards. This may be a result of not having found or identified the most appropriate technological solution.
