Our Compliance Status
We feel that the internet should be accessible to everyone so we are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability.
To do this, we are working to adhere to the latest World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level. These guidelines explain how to make web content accessible to people with a wide array of disabilities. Complying with these guidelines helps us ensure that the website is accessible to all people such as blind people, those with motor impairments, the visual impaired, and more.
We are always looking into and working to use various technologies that are meant to make it as accessible as possible at all times. If you come across any issues, please use the following email to let us know about those issues: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are aware of and working to implement the ARIA attributes (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) to ensure blind users visiting are able to read and enjoy the website’s functions. We strive to provide accurate form labels; descriptions for actionable icons (social media icons, search icons, cart icons, etc.); validation guidance for form inputs; element roles such as buttons, menus, pop ups, and others.
Disability Profiles Supported In Our Website
- Epilepsy Safe Profile: this profile enables people with epilepsy to use the website safely by eliminating the risk of seizures that result from flashing or blinking animations and risky color combinations.
- Visually Impaired Profile: this website so that it is accessible to the majority of visual impairments such as Degrading Eyesight, Tunnel Vision, Cataract, Glaucoma, and others.
- ADHD Friendly Profile: this profile significantly reduces distractions and noise, to help people with ADHD and Neurodevelopmental disorders browse, read, and focus on the essential elements more easily.
Additional UI, Design, And Readability Adjustments

- Audio muting – users with hearing devices may experience headaches or other issues due to automatic audio playing. This option lets users mute the entire website instantly.
- Cognitive disorders – we utilize a search engine that is linked to Wikipedia and Wiktionary, allowing people with cognitive disorders to decipher meanings of phrases, initials, slang, and others.
- Additional functions – we provide users the option to change cursor color and size, use a printing mode, enable a virtual keyboard, and many other functions.
Browser And Assistive Technology Compatibility
We aim to support the widest array of browsers and assistive technologies as possible, so our users can choose the best fitting tools for them, with as few limitations as possible. Therefore, we have worked very hard to be able to support all major systems that comprise over 95% of the user market share including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera and Microsoft Edge, both for Windows and for MAC users.
We are working on getting our site updated to comply with JAWS and NVDA (screen readers). We will let you know when it is fully capable of handling screen readers as this is still a work in progress.
