Removing Online Barriers, Improving Web Site Usability

Easterseals' accessible, usable Web sites give all users - whether they have disabilities or not - access to a wealth of information about our organization.

This Web site showcases one way corporations or organizations can successfully construct an accessible and usable site without compromising on creativity. In fact, some of the adaptations intended to benefit users with disabilities have also proved useful to people using alternative means of accessing the Internet (text-only screens, handheld computers and wireless telephones, for example).

Easterseals has actively supported and promoted the independence of people with disabilities for more than 80 years. We've helped remove barriers that prevent people from working, going to school, traveling and actively participating in their communities. Our approach to Web site accessibility is just one more step toward providing universal access to people of all abilities.

This Web site complies with online accessibility standards created by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), which has developed common protocols that promote the evolution of the World Wide Web and ensure its interoperability. Easter Seals meets or exceeds the requirements of W3C's three priority levels of accessibility, when applicable.

Easterseals sites also meets or exceeds federal accessibility guidelines set forth by Section 508, the 1998 Congressional amendment to the Rehabilitation Act requiring Federal agencies to eliminate barriers in information technology, to make available new opportunities for people with disabilities, and to encourage development of technologies that will help achieve these goals.

Easterseals is dedicated to Web site accessibility, and we welcome comments on how to improve accessibility.
