Accessibility

We have tried to make the site as accessible as possible for all visitors.

Accessibility Standards

Our goal for the website is that all pages should meet the Priority 2 (Level AA) checkpoints of the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WAI AA)

A limited number of pages, such as those displaying maps provided by Google, do rely on JavaScript and will not be accessible to users of certain assistive technologies or users who have turned off JavaScript in their browsers.

We will continue to try to improve the accessibility of the website, and your feedback is important to us for this.
