for Technical Assistance
The Southwest ADA Center is committed to making its website and the information it provides accessible to the widest audience possible. We designed our website using the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines as guidance for making it accessible to users with disabilities and it complies with the federal standards established by Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.
Should you encounter any accessibility barriers or would like to make suggestions on improving our website, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Many documents on this site and linked outside this site are in Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format (PDF) to allow people to view the document in its original printed format. In order to view and print PDF documents, you may need to download and install the free Acrobat Reader software. People using screen readers and other assistive technologies may have difficulty accessing PDF documents, especially if they were not scanned with Adobe's accessibility features enabled. If you have any trouble viewing the PDF publications on our site, we can make them available in an alternate format such as Word or text.
The social networking tools that we use (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Youtube) may present barriers to people using screen reader technology, especially when navigating to areas that we do not control. We utilise these popular tools to reach the widest audience possible and many people with disabilities use these tools despite their barriers.
The information that we post on these social networking sites will also be available on or through this website. Our ASL Youtube videos are also captioned for users with hearing impairments and have audio for people with visual impairments.
