We are committed to making our Web site accessible to all users. To make the site more accessible, we include several features designed to improve accessibility for users with disabilities. Some of these features are described below.
A descriptive text equivalent is provided for images and other non-text elements, aiding users who listen to the content of the site by using a screen reader, rather than reading the site.
Major reports and other special publications that are made available on the Web site are generally available in html or other accessible format. When publishing a document in PDF, we will also post an accessible version or a link for simple conversion to html.
We are committed to making its Web site accessible according to the standards set forth by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). To improve the accessibility of our Web site, we test any major redesign with several screen readers and other Web tools. The results of these reviews are incorporated into the Web site. We use various tools for site validation and it is our goal to achieve the highest level of accessibility attainable.
We welcome comments on how to improve the site's accessibility for users with disabilities. If you use assistive technology and the format of any material on our Web site interferes with your ability to access the information, please email us. To enable us to respond in a manner most helpful to you, please indicate the nature of your accessibility problem, the preferred format in which to receive the material, the Web address of the requested material and your contact information.
