Careers In Government is committed to providing the best experience to our users through the highest levels of accessibility. We continue to improve our design standards that help users identify, understand, and interact with information on our website.
Careers In Government strives to meet the current online usability and design requirements recommended by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) in its Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1 AA.).
We follow W3C’s globally recognized standards to provide content that is compatible with computer-based assistive technologies and browsers. We recommend that visitors to our site utilize the most current versions of assistive technology applications, along with current versions of web browsers. We also encourage trying different types of browsers with assistive technology applications to determine which combination works best for them.
Additionally, we support screen magnification technologies and accessibility features — like zoom, color and other image controls, that most major browsers provide.
We do not provide assistive technology applications or browsers. Please visit the individual manufacturers or developer’s site for information about how to obtain them. You may also receive assistance from local and state agencies or non-profit groups in your area.
Third Party Websites
Throughout our website, we make use of and link to different third-party websites and services. These include but are not limited to, social media sites such as Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and information resources. Please be aware that these sites, which are not controlled by this site, may present challenges for individuals with disabilities that we are not able to control or remedy.
Ongoing Efforts to Ensure Accessible Content
Careers In Government uses the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.1 as its guiding principle. As we develop new pages and functionality, the principles of accessible design and development are an integral part of conception and realization.
We continually test content and features for WCAG 2.1 Level AA compliance and remediate any issues to ensure we meet or exceed the standards. Testing of our digital content is performed by our accessibility experts using automated testing, screen readers, a color contrast analyzer, keyboard-only navigation techniques, and a variety of bookmarklets.
