Accessibility Statement

eSSENTIAL Accessibility was founded to make the digital world accessible for all. We’ve created a perfect blend of software and people to make digital properties fully accessible. This backdrop informs our accessibility statement.

eSSENTIAL Accessibility is committed to producing digital products and to adopting technologies that are accessible to everyone. We will make every reasonable effort to ensure that we conform to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, Level AA and comply with the Department of Justice’s Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards for Accessible Design, and other applicable regulations.

To accomplish this, we leverage our own tools and techniques to continuously monitor our accessibility and oversee its governance. Our accessibility program evaluates and audits our own digital products on an ongoing basis in accordance with best practices and is supported by our diverse team of accessibility professionals, including users of assistive technologies. The eSSENTIAL Accessibility platform, moreover, goes beyond minimum compliance requirements by making an assistive CX technology application available to site visitors who have trouble typing, gesturing, moving a mouse, or reading. Our application is free to download from our clients’ digital properties and incorporates tools such as mouse and keyboard replacements, voice recognition, speech enablement, hands-free/touch-free navigation, and more.

Building inclusive and accessible digital experiences is an extension of our corporate mission. We want to hear from you if you encounter any accessibility problems. Please contact us.

Specifically, what we have done to make our website an accessible experience includes:

Screen Resolution

This web site is designed to respond to the size of your screen. Resize your browser to the size that best suits your needs.

Text Contrast

All text on this site has been created to have a contrast ratio over its background of over 4.5:1. This adheres to W3C Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 level AA.

Images

All content images on this site are provided with descriptive ALT attributes. Graphics that are purely decorative in function have empty ALT attributes, to prevent them from displaying on screen readers.

Navigation

All pages contain a link to the home page, sitemap and search box. The primary navigation has been built in a consistent fashion to provide clear navigation throughout the site. Secondary navigation is provided for way-finding through individual sections of the site.

Links

Links have been written to make sense out of context, title tags or spans of text only visible to screen readers have been used to expand on the meaning of short links.

Tips for Browsing

Skip to Content

For those using screen reader and non-mouse users, you have the option to skip straight to the content by clicking “Skip to main content”.

Many web browsers allow you to zoom in on web pages using simple keyboard controls. The magnifier allows you to focus on specific parts of the screen, enlarging the text and other page elements.

  • For Windows operating systems, press Ctrl and + to zoom in on a web page (Ctrl and – to zoom out)
