Accessibility Statement for Barberton Parks and Recreation Website

At Barberton Parks and Recreation, we are committed to ensuring that our website is accessible to all individuals, regardless of disabilities or impairments. We strive to adhere to the accessibility standards set forth by the State of Ohio and comply with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, Level AA.

Our efforts to improve accessibility include:

  1. Alternative Text: We aim to provide alternative text descriptions for all meaningful images and graphics on our website. These descriptions allow users who utilize assistive technologies, such as screen readers, to understand the content of the images.

  2. Keyboard Navigation: Our website is designed to be navigable using only a keyboard. This allows individuals who have difficulty using a mouse or other pointing device to browse our website easily.

  3. Clear Structure and Headings: We have structured our website content using appropriate headings and subheadings. This helps users with screen readers or other assistive technologies to navigate through the content more efficiently.

  4. Color Contrast: We have made efforts to ensure that the color contrast between text and background elements on our website meets the WCAG 2.1 standards. This enhances readability for users with visual impairments.

  5. Forms and Input Fields: We have incorporated accessible forms and input fields on our website, ensuring that users can complete and submit forms using assistive technologies.

  6. Multimedia Accessibility: We aim to provide closed captions or transcripts for any pre-recorded multimedia content, such as videos or audio files, on our website. This assists users who are deaf or hard of hearing in accessing the information.

  7. Consistent Navigation: Our website has a consistent navigation structure across all pages, making it easier for users to find and access content.

  8. External Links: We strive to ensure that external links on our website open in new windows or tabs, alerting users that they are leaving our website. This allows users to maintain their context and easily return to our site.

  9. Ongoing Monitoring: We regularly review our website for accessibility issues and take appropriate measures to address any identified barriers.

  10. Training and Awareness: Our team members are trained to create and maintain accessible content, ensuring that they understand and follow the accessibility guidelines.

Despite our best efforts to make all pages and content fully accessible, there may be instances where we have unintentionally missed something. We value your feedback and encourage you to contact us if you encounter any barriers or have any questions regarding the accessibility of our website. Please use the contact form on our website to provide your feedback or suggestions.

We are committed to providing an inclusive online experience for all visitors to the Barberton Parks and Recreation website, and we appreciate your support in helping us achieve this goal.
