Accessibility: Accessibility Policy at the Ray Howard Library

The Ray Howard Library takes steps to be in accordance with the WCAG 2.1, which establishes standards for accessibility. Web accessibility will make content accessible to a wider range of people with disabilities.

WCAG 2.1

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 covers a wide range of recommendations for making Web content more accessible. Following these guidelines will make content accessible to a wider range of people with disabilities, including blindness and low vision, deafness and hearing loss, learning disabilities, cognitive limitations, limited movement, speech disabilities, photosensitivity, and combinations of these. These guidelines address accessibility of web content on desktops, laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. Following these guidelines will also often make your Web content more usable to users in general.
