ABC Supports Web Accessibility
Providing an inclusive experience for all website visitors is a high priority for ABC. As such, we have taken the following actions to help provide a more accessible experience.
Include accessibility as a requirement for all web content.
- Content must meet WCAG 2.0 A and should meet AA as feasible.
- Assign clear accessibility goals and responsibilities.
- Ensure content authors have accessibility knowledge and skills.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) standard defines requirements to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. “Fully conforms” means that the content meets all of the WCAG requirements at the specified Level without exceptions.
The ABC website is built to be compliant with WCAG 2.0 Level AA standards. Automated testing will be performed no fewer than 4 times/year to all major page templates. Any issues discovered as part of the automated testing protocol will be resolved as quickly as possible, but will not exceed 1 month.

The ABC website is designed to be compatible with assistive technologies and the last two versions of major browsers. The website is not designed for Internet Explorer 11 and earlier versions.
