At AMBICO, we are committed to ensuring that our website is accessible to all individuals, including those with disabilities. We strive to maintain compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 at the AA level, as well as the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) requirements. This accessibility statement outlines our ongoing efforts to enhance the accessibility of our website and provide an inclusive browsing experience for everyone.
To make our website more accessible, we have implemented various features following WCAG 2.1 AA guidelines and AODA requirements. These features include:
- Alternative Text (Alt Text): We aim to provide descriptive alternative text for all non-text content, such as images, graphs, and charts, allowing users relying on assistive technologies to understand the visual elements.
- Keyboard Accessibility: Our website can be navigated using a keyboard alone, without the need for a mouse or other pointing device. This ensures that individuals who rely on keyboard navigation or alternative input devices can access all interactive elements.
- Clear and Consistent Layout: We strive to maintain a clear and consistent layout throughout our website, making it easier for users to navigate and understand the content.
- Color Contrast: We have considered color contrast guidelines to ensure that the text and other visual elements on our website have sufficient contrast, improving readability for individuals with visual impairments.
- Descriptive Links: Whenever possible, we use descriptive link text that provides meaningful information about the destination of the link. This helps users using assistive technologies to understand the purpose of the link.
We are dedicated to continuously improving the accessibility of our website. To achieve this, we regularly review our website and conduct accessibility audits to identify and address any areas that may not meet WCAG 2.1 AA and AODA compliance.
We also provide accessibility training to our content creators and developers to ensure that they are aware of and follow accessibility best practices when creating and updating website content.
While we strive to make our entire website accessible, it is possible that some third-party content or applications integrated into our site may not fully conform to WCAG 2.1 AA and AODA standards. We make every effort to work with external vendors and partners to encourage accessibility compliance and resolve any accessibility issues that may arise.
