The Senior Games website is designed to reduce barriers to content for any and all visitors with disabilities by implementing requirements that allow an inclusive, accessible online experience for users with assistive technology. Here are some examples of the platform’s accessible design include:
- Access to information in a clear and consistent manner for screen readers.
- Legible fonts and high-contrast colors for easier readability.
- Easy and logical navigation.
- Keyboard accessibility.
Our website incorporates federally mandated Section 508 compliance standards and best practices recommended by the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0) for web accessibility. Some of these included are:
- Legible fonts and high-contrast colors for easy readability.
- All information conveyed with color can also be understood without color.
- Text alternative fields for non-text elements.
- Designed web pages so that all content presented without an associated style sheet does not lose information or structure.
- Keyboard accessibility, where all functionality is available through the use of a keyboard and without the use of a mouse.
- Identified row and column headers in data tables.
- Online forms are designed allowing assistive technology to access the information, field elements, and functionality required for completion and submission of the form, including all directions and cues.
- “Skip to main content” link at the top of each page permitting users to skip repetitive navigation links.
- There is a mechanism for the user to pause, stop, or hide moving or scrolling information that starts automatically, lasts more than 5 seconds, and is presented in parallel with other content.
Here at Senior Games, we are continuously working to increase accessibility standards and meet all levels of accessibility conformance and guidelines. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us as soon as possible.
