Arkansas School for the Deaf
Website Accessibility Information
The Arkansas School for the Deaf website (www.arschoolforthedeaf.org) endeavors to conform and comply with both the American with Disability Act (ADA) and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG) as specified by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible and the district works to educate our staff so that the content they may post on our website will be compliant with ADA guidelines and WCAG specifications. Users who wish to view these specifications can do so at Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0
This version of the ASD website launched in Fall 2017 with accessibility in mind. The website uses code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS. The site displays correctly in current browsers, and using standards compliant HTML/CSS code means any future browsers will also display it correctly.
ASD uses the Edlio Content Management System (CMS) for the district website, in part because Edlio provides a platform for accessible websites that meet Section 508 guidelines and Level AA conformance to WCAG 2.0. The Edlio CMS features many accessibility lockdown tools to prevent non-accessible content from displaying on district websites. You may read Edlio’s website accessibility statement at Edlio Website Accessibility.
ASD is committed to maintaining standards for accessibility on the district website that meet or exceed those required by WCAG and W3C. We continue to monitor and evaluate our website and related policies according to these specifications as well as our own standards for increasing accessibility for all.
