Accessibility Statement

I believe that websites intended for public consumption should be accessible to the widest possible audience regardless of individual circumstance or ability of any member of said public. This is a socially positive and necessary thing to do. To that end, my site adheres as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0) published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

The WCAG explains how to make web content more accessible for people with varying disabilities. Such disabilities may include reduced vision or blindness, other issues that make reading difficult or impossible, difficulty hearing, reduced fine motor control which could make a keyboard and/or mouse difficult to use. Conformance with these guidelines help make web sites more user friendly and accessible to everyone.

 

My site should be accessible to screen reading software, to people who can use only a mouse, or only a keyboard. Additionally, I am beginning to record all my articles so they may be listened-to instead of by reading. Audio recordings will help site visitors who may have trouble reading, for whatever reason, but who may not be using a screen reader.

Please reach out to me if anything about my site layout and arrangement is difficult for you to access or understand.
