We hope you will find the Pathways Web site both visually appealing and fully accessible, while allowing full and equal access to blind or visually impaired visitors who use screen-reading or magnification technology. If you use a text-based browser, a screen reader, a Braille terminal, or any other adaptive device, you should have no difficulty accessing any information on this Web site. If you discover any accessibility problems with this site, please send a message to the Pathways Webmaster.
The Pathways Web site is designed using style sheets to allow visitors easy access to the wealth of information stored here. Style sheets are intended to benefit users with limited or no vision, but may also be useful to people using alternative means of accessing the Internet (hand-held devices or TV-based systems, for example).
Here are some more ways the site accommodates online accessibility needs: Images on the site contain “alt tags”, which aid users who listen to the content of the site by using a screen reader, rather than reading the site. Likewise, a “skip to” link provides these users with a method for bypassing the header and going directly to the main content each time a page is accessed. Where applicable, text transcripts accompany audio clips.
Site visitors can get information regarding the accessibility of Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files from the Access Adobe Web site.
Pathways is proud that our Web site meets the requirements of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) (Level AA), Bobby and Section 508 (of the Rehabilitation Act) of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998. As with all Web sites, we are continually working to make all pages more accessible. Pathways welcomes comments on how to improve the site’s accessibility.
