We firmly believe that the internet should be available and accessible to anyone, and are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability.
To fulfill this promise, we aim to adhere as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level, published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible to people with a wide array of disabilities. Complying with those guidelines helps us provide a site that is accessible to all people, from the blind to the motor impaired.
This website utilizes various technologies all meant to make it more accessible. We utilize an interface that allows persons with specific disabilities to adjust the website’s UI (user interface) and design it to their personal needs. This interface replaces the older fashioned method of providing all users with the same, lesser but accessible design or user interface.
Here are some of the interfaces capabilities:
Font handling – users can increase and decrease its size, change its family (type), adjust the spacing, alignment, line height, and more.
Color handling – users can select various color contrast profiles such as light or dark.
Text to Speach – it’s commonly used as an accessibility feature to help people who have trouble reading on-screen text.
Keyboard Navigation – patricialafosserealtor.com has implemented features so keyboard navigation is easy and clear for those with visual and other impairments.
Content highlighting – users can choose to emphasize important elements such as links and titles. They can also choose to highlight focused or hovered elements specifically.
Other options – we provide users the option to change cursor sizing, enable a virtual keyboard, quick “Links Navigation”, and much more.
