We find it essential that anyone and everyone who wants to access the information technology used here at Penn-Florida Companies is able to do so equally, regardless of any disability they may have. Ensuring that our technology is universally accessible to everyone is the right thing to do, and also the law. In order to make this happen, we have adopted an IT Accessibility Policy that outlines the steps we are taking to ensure that all users have that access. We also constantly audit our website to discover new ways in which we can improve accessibility and navigability.
Penn-Florida is committed to ensuring the accessibility of its web content to individuals with disabilities. We strive to include, to the best of our abilities, the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the Department of Justice published ADA Compliance guidelines in our design process. In the event that our accessibility formats do not meet your specific requirements, please email our marketing department at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ADA Compliance and we will gladly provide you further assistance.
High contrast viewing benefits individuals with low vision or other visual disabilities. Care is taken throughout our design process to create visually distinct elements across all our marketing materials. Our web designs strive for distinguishability (WCAG 2.1) by creating a clear separation between foreground text and background imagery. We have included an accessibility optiosn toolbar to enable high-contrast viewing on our website.
Any flashing content on our website, such as sidebar access buttons, adhere to the three flashes or below threshold to limit physical reactions and/or seizures.
For individuals with deafness or those hard-of-hearing, all attempts are made to ensure the Penn-Florida website utilizes alternative text that can be recognized by reader equipment, resizable text, and video captioning (as alternatives for time-based media/video).
Limited fine motor control or inability to use a mouse can prove to be very difficult. We reduce this strain by making every attempt at providing navigation bypass blocks and using proper focus order on web-elements. Predictable and consistent navigation also aid in ease of use for those accessing our website.
